  • Janice worked so hard to attain her Grade 12 standing and accept a promotion at work. She was successful. In class she always tried to help other students and her friendly manner and encouragement meant a lot to them. She always spoke about her daughter and how she wanted the best life for her. It was obvious that her world revolved around her daughter. It was my privilege to have had the chance to know her. - Posted by: Margaret Banasiak (GED Teacher) on: Dec 21, 2020
