DREAMS OF HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA COME TRUE

LIFE, EDUCATION, TRAINING, SKILLS

Christina

Christina R., an outstanding student in The Arc Mid-South’s Life, Education, Training, Skills (LETS) classroom, initially started the program with a lack of motivation in learning and a lack of interest in obtaining a job.  She has faced many obstacles, and challenges; yet she has emerged victoriously.  Through encouragement from the instructors of the LETS classroom, Christina is now eagerly applying for jobs online, using her newfound keyboard skills to help make it happen. 

Christina’s biggest trial has been in mathematics, always saying, “It’s too tough.”  With one on one assistance from the instructors, continued motivation, and urging from Career Development staff, Christina has worked diligently to improve her concentration and master her mathematics lessons.  

Christina has now transitioned her focus to reading comprehension, and is well on her way to earning her GED.  Christina’s GPA is the highest in the class, and she looks forward to securing a job and becoming a productive citizen.  There is no doubt that Christina will reach her goal.
