Hi shedrack!
Am very glad to hear that you are working very hard.Keep up the sky is the limit.
Keep working extra harder.
Byeeeeeeeeeeeee.,
Hello Sharon,
Great greetings too,I am still benefiting through the on line classes.As we have been participating in the mentor series it has been very helpful for us since we are able to know the challenges in some of careers and also the advantages.Since I changed my career from electrical engineer to law ,I liked how the advocate said.I am still working extra since I understand it is through working extra one can succeed.At home we have a farm where we grow maize,beans and other crops we are still preparing that farm waiting for rain season.

I am still reading so as to achieve the goals.
Greetings Shadrack!

I hope you are finding the on-line classes at the KC LRC helpful. Have you participated in the mentor series? Did you like hearing from some engineers? Are you still interested in electricity? I think there are some good books in the KC library about electricity. I'm sure Primma can help you find them. Did you know that students who read outside of class for fun tend to score higher on exams?

I live in Maryland which is close to Washington, DC, our nation's Capitol. There are. a lot of wonderful museums there. Before the pandemic we would visit them. I especially liked the Air and Space museum and the Museum of Natural History. During the pandemic we have been hiking in the woods and taking bike rides on the weekend. We did have a vegetable garden during the summer, but now it's getting cold so we will have to wait until the spring to plant again.

Do you have a farm at your home? What do you grow?

Keep reading and doing the on-line classes until you go back to school. Take care! Sharon
