I am witting in anticipation of what’s to come for my boys. They are 15 and 16 and in no way shape or form ready for High School. My children have severe Learning Disabilities, that ranges from reading, writing, math, language. They have normal IQ and have been in special education with tutors since the first grade. I tell you this because I don’t want you to think I am coping out on them. I am only being realistic that if traditional and non tradition approaches haven’t work yet. I have little faith anything will change in HS.
Currently my children had valid IEP with accommodation that help level the playing field. They use readers, scribes, and educational software to do their school work. I believe with one on one instruction (using me for the one on one) along with no time restrictions, and the continued use of their education software that it would be possible for my children to acquire their High School GED.
My name is Elizabeth Lewis and I am a 37 year old woman who is seeking to pursue my GED. I have been thinking of doing this for quite some time now however allowed fear to get in the way. You see, I am afraid of failing for failing is what I’ve done best in my life. I have two boys 12 and 8 who has no clue of the fact their mom did not graduate from high school. I’ve done very well with jobs being able to work pretty decent jobs all my life however the fact of not finishing school haunts my mind everyday. I think of college majoring in psychology but with no high school diploma or GED it will always remain a thought and/or dream to me. I would love to make this dream a reality. As stated, my fear of failing has crippled me hindering me from going forth in my dream. Your advise and assistance would be greatly appreciated in helping me achieve my goal.
Hi my name is Robert and i need my GED. I messed up real bad in school i did nothing. I regret it now I wish that I had a diploma cause now I am having the hardest time trying to get a job or make something of my life. I realy need help.
I am 25 now and am ready for a change in my life. Enough. Enough. I have two kids and a good woman. I struggle with labor jobs and am tired all the time. Sometimes I work two jobs a day. I’m not afraid of hard work. The ged will help me get a better education and a better job. My best friend just got into a tech school with his ged. My turn now.
Hi, I have a daughter who has not finished high school. She has had
problems with drugs and will be coming out of a correctional facility
tuesday. Soon will be going into a half-way house.
I came across your website by accident, i would like her to finish
her schooling and i feel your program on line would be perfect.
Myself has not finished high school either and maybe if I show her
that I’am going to do the same thing ,maybe this will give her more possitive direction.
You don’t know how excited I feel inside right now!!!. I have been dealing with this problem for the past 2 years and it just got worst. Alot of things I didn’t know about what my daughter was doing. This is the third time in and hopefully the last! I don’t think she has hit the bottom but I have gotten stronger. Thanks for listening.
My name is Anthony Gilbert and I am 21 years old. For some time now I’ve been struggling with the whole GED process. When I dropped out of high school I was in the middle of the 10th grade, so i decided to enter an alternative program to prepare for the exam and I spend months studying and eventually not passing. After that, it continued to be a repeatition of failure. For about three years now i never went back on giving it another shot. However, I just recently decided that i will give it another effort.
My goal is to get my GED by the end of summer (06) by studying online. Maybe I’ll try a class again, but probably not. Then with the GED I’m going to computer school to learn programming . I know a little about it now, but not enough and I can’t take the course without the GED.
I am 25, single mother (6yrs. old) and am struggling to receive my GED. I have recently moved from NY to VA. Because I have no high school diploma, I was denied two job offers today (note to self- I am very diappointed at myself.)
I was sitting at my compoter and I was thinking about my goals and as always all the time that has passed in the ten years without a good education. I went to class off and on again and again. But it never stuck with me.
I want to get the GED because I need a better job. I’m sick of the crummy pay and no future. It’s time for me, I think.
My name is Kathy. I dropped out of h.s. in the tenth grade. Seemed like a good idea at the time. I was into a lot of stuff then, most of it not good. Well I ended up with two kids. Now I’m a mom and it’s hard cuz I can’t give them all the things they want.
I am very nervous and it is something that I promised myself I would do when I turned 30 and that was in january…So I really need to start now for myself…I am really worried about the essay and the math… I want it to be a surprise for my husband and kids…so thank you for all the comments that have kept me to want to still get my ged after all this time.
