Meet Mabel Adriana Correa, a student at San Ysidro Adult School. Mabel was a math teacher in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. She became a mom and moved to the United States. In the US, she started to work in a warehouse. Because she is goal oriented, she wanted to go to school to pursue a career here in the US.

She enrolled in ESL 3 – Intermediate Low and HiSET at the same time. She achieved her goal and passed her High School Equivalency exams as well as completed ESL 4 – Intermediate High by the end of the school year.
