Belinda C. took her first ed2go course six years ago and has taken numerous online writing courses since. After completing her courses, she’s published close to 100 combined articles and short stories as well as started her own teaching curriculum!
Belinda’s amazing ed2go story:
I love the excitement that begins in your gut and spreads across your face in a huge, heartfelt grin. That’s how I feel when one of my adult learners writes or texts saying, “I passed!”
It was that feeling that motivated me to take my love of teaching to a broader audience. The first step was to sign up for an ed2Go class on The Craft of Magazine Writing followed by an Introduction to Internet Writing Markets.
After completing the classes, I began writing articles in teaching magazines like Child Care Exchange. From there, I continued with parenting articles in local periodicals like, Western New York Family. The highlight of my magazine writing came in 2010 when I had an article published in the national magazine, Family Fun.
The Internet provided countless opportunities to guide adult learners in everything from money tips in The Dollar Stretcher to book reviews and writing advice at Every Free Chance Books.
Ed2go made such a difference in my non-fiction efforts, I decided to sign up for Write Fiction Like a Pro. Since completing that class, I’ve sold two short stories. Both are included in the popular Not Your Mother’s Book anthologies.
Since that first class over six years ago, I’ve published close to one hundred combined articles and short stories!
Currently, I’m putting my ed2go skills to work, developing a curriculum to prepare students for the Naturalization Exam. This is my biggest project to date. It’s especially exciting because I get the opportunity to help transition students from immigrant to American.
As I look toward a future in teaching and writing, I plan to pay it forward and provide other adult learners with the ability and self-assurance to attain their dreams. Who knows? If all goes well, you may even find me teaching a class one day in the same ed2go forum that helped sharpen my skills!
