Adult Education GED Teacher Makes Polk Schools PROUD!

Our GED teacher, Karen Hagerty, just received this recognition from Polk County Public Schools!!! Ms. Hagerty teaches students in person during the day and has taught over 180 students online this school year! Her students praise her willingness to encourage and challenge them. They say she is always available and helps them understand the concepts they are trying to understand. She is an amazing role model for those called to teach! Congratulations! This is well-deserved!!
