Read a message from Lily:
I have good teachers, such as Ms. Janice Smith, who has been great in helping me. It helps when my teachers check in with me to see if I am on track, like a coach or mentor. My parents are also very supportive. I have a sister-in-law who is a teacher, who also encourages me. In addition, I love kids and have eight nieces and nephews. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about enrollment in college or considering dual enrollment classes to try it. You can only learn from your experience.
