Student Admits Value of Required Writing Assignment

Daniel, from Diamond Springs, CA USA just finished his last monthly report for our High School Diploma Program. I never know how students respond to the writing assignment unless they tell me. And it's always gratifying to hear from students who report that they enjoyed the program and found it valuable. Here is Daniel's last paragraph of his report:

"There's no point in beating around the bush...this is my last report and it was fun.  I enjoyed reading my creations and I also enjoyed reading your responses.  I think I really learned something about myself.  Before your program, I didn’t like to write much and avoided it whenever I could.  After writing the reports, I’ve learned that writing isn’t so bad and I actually like to write.  I can’t believe that I’m graduating high school!  I know that this is just the beginning and not the end and I look forward to seeing where my life takes me.  And now I know if it involves writing, I can handle it."
