I would like to say that I have been very pleased with the GELI program this year. My daughter is a student in this class so I feel like I have great insight into this program. I have to admit that when I placed her here, I felt like she would be very advanced as far as in the education realm, but would benefit from the class in the area of socialization. She had been taught at home for her entire life and has always been more advanced than others her age. To my surprise, she has learned so much more in the past 3 1/2 months than I could have ever imagined. Not only academically, but she has blossomed socially and in other areas of development too. I have been an educator for 21 years, therefore I feel like I know what to look for when it comes to quality education. I've also worked with The Early Intervention Programs of Mississippi for almost 18 years so I understand Early Childhood Education as it works hand in hand with both of my jobs. I feel like the GELI Promise Schools of Monroe County have been the biggest asset to our education system in a long time. We will definitely see the benefits of this program more and more as these children move through-out our Elementary schools in the near future. Thank You for this wonderful program! Sincerely, Kim R.
