Night School


On Mondays and Wednesdays, from 6-9, I teach an amazing group of students who are prepping for their GED test. Tonight was the last class of a ten week session and a few of us left with teary eyes. I can't guarantee they'll all pass, but I know that they will all give it their best. Their resiliency is amazing and their character is inspiring. Cheers to second chances.

Gosh, adult ed is so much fun . . . a completely different experience than teaching teenagers, but just as amazing.

Thank you for pouring your heart into it.

Aloha all,
Thanks for all of the comments.
Teaching these GED classes has really changed my approach to education. It is an honor to share a classroom with them and I make sure they know I feel that way every time I see them.
