Good on ya! I'm a teacher and I think you going back will help kids at risk. I wen't back at the age of 19 to up grade my math. It wasn't easy sitting in a grade 10 class with a bunch of 15 yr olds. I stuck with it went to university the next year and now I'm a teacher. Every time I saw a kid screwing up I would always say to them, "Do YOU want to be 19 in a grade 10 class?" I would tell them that I used to act like they were and that's why I was back. It got through to a couple of them. Your sittuation may be totally different from mine as to why you are going back but the point is you are. Remember no matter how hard it seems at times you are doing the right thing! Stick with it and keep us posted. If every you need a boost drope us a line!
