When I was at school before as a teenager, I didn’t like the rules and the teachers were not helpful to me. Because of this I stopped going to school and I didn’t get my high school diploma. Without school, I felt like I wasn’t going to be anybody important. Years passed. I got older and realized I needed to clean up my act. With my parents` encouragement I thought about going back to school and made the right choice on coming back.
What I think of adult learning program is that all the teachers are very nice and they try to help everyone who needs it. This is very different than what I had dealt with before, and because of that I will probably stay in school this time. The teachers are very competent and assured about the way they teach to the students. I think that everyone who hasn’t finished Grade 12 should come back to school and enter this program to succeed at getting their diploma to make a better living for themselves. I like the program very much because there are very good people here and they help anyone who is struggling.
I am doing very well in the program because I am keeping up with the work and the teachers are not so pushy at trying to get things done so that I can work at my own pace, still succeed and not get kicked out of the program. The program can be very difficult at first if you haven’t gone to school in a couple years, but the way the teachers teach and show you how to do things makes it a lot easier to understand what you are trying to focus on in a certain subject.
I am very happy with the program and the pace that I am moving. Because I am very comfortable in the program, my attendance and my behavior are good. I am not getting into trouble and therefore am succeeding. I think that we have the best teachers that anyone could have. Every student has confidence, because the teachers never let anyone fall behind. In the ALP Program, every person is important.
