From the Field: Breaking the Cycle
One graduate explains how she helps GED students reach their goals.
“One of my best friends was gunned down on my 20th birthday. I grew up in a very small city, and my entire community was blown away by it. When I became a teacher, I realized I was surrounded by young men who had lost friends to senseless murders. I found myself stressing the importance of making good choices. As an instructor in a juvenile detention and treatment facility, I implemented a curriculum that dramatically increased the number of students who earned a GED. I have been able to put so much of what I learned at to work in the classroom. I am blessed to be able to help students who have a history of ‘failing’ in school realize it is not too late to start conceiving, believing, and achieving their goals.”
