Gracie Achieves Her Goal of Being a Certified EMT

Gracie Achieves Her Goal of Being a Certified EMT

What did you do?

Thanks to the flexibility of homeschooling, Gracie was able to take extra classes through our local technical college and earn her certification for an EMT.

She has also held a job through the school year that allows her to work early morning shifts and complete school work in the afternoons.

Gracie also finished her senior year coursework in March, with the exception of a research report she will finish online.

This is enabling her to take a 3-month job as a nanny in Spain.

How did homeschooling help you achieve your goal?

Being able to schedule school work around an outside job and college night classes enabled Gracie to achieve her goals of being a certified EMT, volunteering with the department and going on emergency calls at a moment’s notice.

What are your interests?

Gracie loves helping people and loves children, and has led to her training as an EMT with extra classes in Pediatric care.

What are you inspired to do with your life?

Gracie would love to be an EMT full time with the possibility of taking classes for Early Childhood Education in the future.
