Hello!  I want to give you some information that should make your interaction with Irvin High School more positive, successful, and enjoyable. As a Graduation Coach, my purpose is to provide you with resources and experiences that will enable you to determine just what you want in your future.

I can offer many resources, which include referrals to various agencies, that will make it easier for you to get your diploma or GED. Many programs available include GED and internships that enable you to obtain your GED and certification to work in various fields. These programs are available through Workforce Solutions, Job Corps, and local school district options.

If you need additional assistance with obtaining food, food stamps, daycare, housing, work, dual college and high school credit, transportation, health care or counseling, please come in and see me. Generally, if there is anything that is preventing you from reaching your goals, I am sure that I can help you. If you are having difficulty attending school or making the progress you want, please come see me.
