Over the years I have had wonderful writing classes at top tier schools on both coasts (including locally), but improved by far the most from a writing workshop I took through the Palo Alto Adult School. What a value for my money! It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say it changed my life.
My workshop was led by the incomparable Barbara Noble, who has since retired and moved away. I continue to be amazed by the quality of the offerings through the adult school. A true gem for the community.

I volunteer tutor ESL for Palo Alto Adult Ed. My student takes the free ESL classes. I've seen his English improve so very much in the two years I've known him. It's marvelous to see people become integrated into our culture through these programs.
