Spring is Around the Corner!

Hello Everyone,

It is nice to be moving into Spring 2013.  Spring is a wonderful time of year for new beginnings.  I am proud of all GED students who have passed their test (or parts) this Winter.  Many students are on the road to completing their goal of getting a GED, and you should be one of them!  Distance Learning Teachers work hard to help every student obtain their goal(s).  We have heard many great stories from our students about how determination, drive, and (sometimes) outright stubborness got them through their GED courses.  It is not an easy task but once you have accomplished this first step in your career, the world opens up to you!  Please continue to share stories with us, let us know your goals and dreams, and work with us to help make it happen for you.  Spring 2013 a new beggining.
