Meet Edie! Edie is the VERY FIRST learner her mentor (Elysa) has ever nominated for the Learner of the Month award. According to Elysa,
I’ve had, and have, a lot of great learners to mentor but I wanted to take this opportunity to recognize Edie.
When Edie joined us at GLA in July 2018, she had been unemployed for an extended period of time and receiving income support. During her registration she wrote in the “About You” section:
I’m not a very computer person
As you will see by all the courses that she has completed, Edie challenged that and overcame it. Edie also expressed that she was frustrated with her ability to retain information as she progresses through her courses — something many of us understand — but this hasn’t stopped her either.
Edie has completed 7 courses with GLA and is currently working on Culinary Arts in our Plato platform.
In December, Edie’s mentor received an email from Edie with some exciting news – that she had started a new job as a Billing Specialist! We at Good Learning Anywhere couldn’t have been happier for her! Currently, Edie is continuing her learning at GLA, but will be working on her courses on the weekends from now on.
Let’s hear from Edie:
How did you first hear about online learning with Good Learning Anywhere?
Told about by someone I met
Did you have any struggles during your learning? If so, how did you overcome them?
I had help from my teacher
What advice do you have for someone thinking about starting to improve their skills?
It’s a good thing
What is your greatest achievement? Or what accomplishment are you most proud of?
Finishing each course
What are your goals for the future?
Keep working on learning new things
Is there anyone you would like to thank for supporting you on this journey?
Is there anything else you would like to share with people about winning this award?
Thank you very much
Congratulations Edie and best of luck with your new job!
