Congratulations to Kimberly Disotell for being chosen Good Learning Anywhere’s October Learner of the Month!
Kimberly enrolled in our program this past spring, when she began taking independent learning courses in Plato. She is a very dedicated and focused learner, who is always very active in her courses and therefore, has made amazing progress towards reaching her goal of employment in Office Administration in just a few short months. Kimberly is very enthusiastic, and has become much more confident with technology over the course of her time spent learning with Good Learning Anywhere, not only in class, but through regular communication with her mentor Nida. It has been so incredible to hear Kimberly’s story and all she has accomplished.
We asked Kimberly to answer a few questions and share her journey. These are her responses:
What advice do you have for someone thinking of upgrading their skills?
Set your goals and pursue them! Connect with Good Learning Anywhere, Contact North, The Learning Hub, Job Zone, and T.R. Leger School. Any one of these places and programs are very supportive, helpful, understanding, and encouraging. Before you know it you will be done.
How did you start?
I contacted T.R. Leger School and Debbie Heldens explained the ALEPP Program for Adults. She went over course curriculum that are available and I chose the Office Clerical curriculum. Debbie registered me and from there she helped me connect with Contact North. Contact North connected me with The Learning Hub and Good Learning Anywhere.
If you encountered any struggles, what were they and how did you overcome them?
I encountered problems with computer technology. My instructor, Nida Doherty was very quick, helpful, and supportive. We solved the technology issues and I finished the courses. All my instructors were encouraging, helpful, supportive, and understanding. Thank you, Nida, Tess, and Debbie.
What is your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement is completing all the courses that were required or recommended for the Office Clerical curriculum that lead to Learner of the Month for October. That is a great accomplishment for me.
What are your goals for the future?
My goal is to find employment in the Office Clerical field and eventually upgrade to Administrative Assistant.
We wish you all the best Kimberly!
