A Portland Adult Education (PAE) class of English language learners and their families gathered at PAE this week to celebrate Thanksgiving with a holiday dinner that included traditional foods – and also some delicious non-traditional ones.

Students in the English as a Second Language class taught by Shoshana Hoose and volunteers who helped cook and put on the meal shared a feast that included turkey, lentils and rice, macaroni and cheese, nine pies and Iraqi cheesecake. The class wrote a poem for Thanksgiving that says what students are thankful for and includes the words for "thank you" in 10 of their native languages. Everyone at the dinner recited the poem and sang the song, "Peace Salaam Shalom."
