    STUDENT SUCCESS STORY: CATHY CELLINI
    Going back to school later in life is terrifying, humbling, and empowering. After a successful profession in the restaurant industry, I wanted a career change. I never imagined it would be a journey that would change my life.

    I started off with the Microsoft Office Suite class known as the “boot camp.” After a few days in this class, I realized why it was called the boot camp. My body was feeling pain where I never felt pain before; I was so out of my element. My instructor, Linda Yocum, guided me and my fellow students gave me the support I needed to finish the program.

    The instructors at Martinez Adult Education care about the students and their success. The students should be thankful for their instructors, I know I am. I am now employed, and I am looking forward to completing my associate degree soon. My life and future are much better today than a year ago, because of the staff at Martinez Adult Education. Thank you!
