Well, I’m a very good mom trying to get back to school to show my kids what they need to know, but it’s hard having 2 kids at home and trying to work and go to school at the same time, so thats my story.
I quit school in the 6th grade because I thought I would never pass to move forward because I just kept on failing the 6th grade, and I never wanted to go to school because of it.
I want my GED for not for only myself but for my kids and family and hope that one day I can become a nurse, taking care of babies that are newborn. I want to make good money for my kids and to help out my family.
My dreams will become reality by putting my head into it. I know I can do it.

Thanks for writing in! Your story is like a lot that we hear about. You didn’t get the help… the real teaching… that you needed in sixth grade. Now, you’ve got a family that you’re caring for, and you’re realizing how important what you missed out on is…
We hear from a lot of parents who want to show their kids how important learning is, who want to be able to help their kids with homework or even do homeschooling. (Kids get a lot out of just seeing their parents study and take learning seriously!) We also hear a lot of people who want to go into nursing or other careers that require more education.
The GED is the key to all of that… and you’re right, you CAN do it. Knowing that is an important step toward passing your GED. What are you doing to study? It is hard to manage kids and work and studying at the same time, but it’s possible. Honestly, that’s why The GED Academy developed a study-at-home program over the Internet, because we know that you’re an adult, with adult obligations. You have to take care of your kids, you have to go to your job, so you need a flexible study program. But you also need to make studying a priority…work on it every day, a little bit. You’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll improve, just doing a little at a time.
Come back and write again when you get that GED!
