“I came to Mid-State Literacy Council in the middle of August 2022. My main goals are to learn English and get my GED. With my tutor, I’m learning new math skills. We are working on addition, subtraction, decimals, etc. My tutor has taught me about the ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands place too.
I want to apply for a job in the Department of Defense. It is a welding job. I have to have my GED to get hired. I have kids and a family that I want to take care of. With my job now, I can’t make enough money. The welding job is a good job and has a good future. I can learn something new and the pay is good. I hope to get the job as soon as I get my GED.”
