I perform myriad duties in the Developmental Skills Lab. I process student’s information, maintain the security and physical appearance of the lab, assist with student registration, and tutor GED preparation students. One of the most important aspects of my job is the ability to help people; in this process I observe their personal growth both as students and as individuals.

Our students have consistently expressed their appreciation for this program. They especially like the flexibility of the lab schedule, the individualized approach to each student, the computer programs and tutoring opportunities, and having a teacher for each of the subjects. Our graduation ceremonies are well-received; students enjoy the speeches given during the graduation ceremony. The program is tuition-free and it is a great benefit for those who cannot afford to pay for our classes.
