I had given up on myself

"I could barely read or write and didn't even realize I had given up on myself… a great teacher from WSD taught me how to believe in myself by showing me the importance of getting an education. She gave me the tools for my education, and as a result, built my self-confidence. It was the greatest accomplishment in my life to learn how to read and write. I am extremely grateful that WSD is much more than trade certificates and GEDs. As a result of my teacher helping me believe in myself, I now have greater freedom in my life. I can be the father my kids need, as well as a positive role model in my community. Most importantly, I can remain free upon my release."
