In celebration of Adult Education and Family Literacy (AEFL) Week, Kentucky’s Office of Adult Education is recognizing students who shared their adult education experiences and successes with a “My Story Reimagined” initiative.
A common observation in these narratives is “grit”. Grit is a personality trait that is embodied by passion and resilience to achieve one's goals. Overcoming obstacles and hardiness are also components of this personality trait. (Source: Alleydog Psychology)
We frequently recognize the grit adult education students possess when they persevere and overcome barriers to pursuing their educational journeys.
How are you celebrating your adult education students and vocation during Adult Education and Family Literacy (AEFL) Week?
How do you support your adult education students in engaging grit?
