Meet Maha Abed, our September Student of the Month! Her teacher writes, "Last year Maha began the year in my basic math class. I quickly realized her potential and encouraged her to try a more advanced class. She attended both of the classes for the rest of the year and improved by leaps and bounds while juggling the responsibilities of wife and mother.
This year she has entered the GED classes and is about to venture into the Fast Track Program. She is one of the hardest working, most dedicated students I have ever had. She stays on task and is very inquisitive. There is a special twinkle in her eyes when she grasps a concept that a teacher really appreciates. Maha rarely misses class, but if she does, she works even harder upon her return.
Maha possesses many characteristics making her a perfect example of a student of the month. She has a friendly and inviting personality. New students are drawn to her. I have often seen her help other students better understand a concept. A quick wit and good sense of humor make her a pleasant person to have in class.
As much as Maha will be missed at Fort Smith Adult Education, I fully expect to see her moving on to more advanced schooling in the near future. She will be just as successful there as here."
