Great Story: Inspirations

Great Stories are written by Guiding Ohio Online AmeriCorps members about their service.

People can be unnerving sometimes, but as a Guiding Ohio Online teacher, I’ve found people are an inspiration. K. is one who freely admits to knowing nothing or very little about computer technology. She even has challenges with her flip phone. But she wants to come to every single digital class that is offered and is almost daily at our library’s public computers. As I’m writing this very article I am interrupted by a call from K. who is asking about a class we are offering tonight. She wants to be around anyone who is sharing information or teaching about digital technology so that she can be more up to date on things. K. is a retired person and her drive to learn and stay in tune with the times amazes me.
