LISA KAZDA, GED Instructor of the EDSI Young Adult GED Program at PA CareerLink

Nominated by: Allyson Thomas

“Teaching was my passion since I was a little girl. I graduated from Penn State with an English degree. During the pandemic, I worked at Red Rock Job Corps and found a love for mentoring youth.
This sense of purpose led to teaching GED classes for 18 to 24-year-olds (young adults) at CareerLink with Equus and EDSI for two years. I also taught GED for adults at LCCC for one year.
I’m proud to say that I helped 68 individuals obtain a GED and go on to work, trade school and college.
My students have all types of success. Some of their accomplishments include Special Operations in the Military, Computer Programming, a Roadie for Rammstein, Cosmetology, Nursing, Trucking and Electrician.
My personal style is to meet students where they are at. I don’t put time limits on their education. The average time frame to obtain a GED is three months. If it takes a student longer or shorter, it is not a problem.
My next step is either a Master’s degree in Teaching or a Masters degree in Social Work.
My father always told me if I help a young person gain the skills to make a living, they will have a good life.
My life purpose is doing just that.”
