Finding Motivation Within and Encouragement from Others Drives IRSC Grad to Her Next Chapter

July 28, 2021 Robert Lane

For Port St. Lucie resident Nahel Jallouk, failure was not an option. After a year and a half of mixed results on the General Knowledge test, a state exam required for acceptance into IRSC baccalaureate programs in education, Nahel—an English as a Second Language student—finally passed all four parts needed to begin her educational journey to become a teacher. Prepared and eligible to take the second and third state exams one year into her studies, she passed each test on try number one.

“My motivation comes from within myself. I am a hard worker, and I push myself to be successful and try to achieve my goals and dreams,” shares Nahel. “I also had a strong support team. My family, many college professors, and ASC tutors helped me push through fears and always used encouraging words.”

In Spring 2021, Nahel crossed the stage to collect her diploma, certifying her Bachelor in Science in Elementary Education with Reading and ESOL Endorsements credential. For her next chapter, Nahel achieves one of her dreams and will teach 2nd Grade in the St. Lucie County School District starting in Fall 2021. Nahel plans to continue her education and pursue a Master’s Degree.
