What Defines Success What is the journey to success? Success is not gained by defeat. Success does not occur over night. Success can emerge at any age. Success is working to full potential. Success is courage. Success is lending a hand. Success is not listening to negativity. Success is being positive. Success is living your life instead of the life of others. Success is being proud. Success is overcoming obstacles. Success is striving. Success is listening to your heart. Most of all success is accepting. What you have accomplished. Alisha Ricks We are proud of all our success stories in April. Congratulations to everyone who completed their GED! Woohoo! Many of you are getting ready to test within the next few weeks.

Hello Everyone,
Happy Spring time!  This is a wonderful time of year.  Everything begins anew.  We dust off the winter blues and look forward to warmer days. It is a time of year when we renew our goals and focus on the future.  We want you to not only think about completing your goals, but what you will do once you have that wonderful diploma in your hand.  How do you plan on making it work for you? It becomes a piece of paper, unless you use it to move on to higher goals and dreams.  Talk to your teacher about how you can use your GED to move into a career, further your skills in the workforce and/or go to college.  At Northside Adult Education, we want you to not only get your GED, it is our mission to help you move beyond your GED into a great career.  We look forward to speaking with each of you on how we can assist you in your future goals.
