Meet Joe L.! Carone Learning Student of the Week

Let us introduce you to our student of the week, Joe L.!  Joe took Family Consumer Science with us. He took this course because some health issues cause him to miss so much school. Joe persevered through the course with his illness and was able to learn information that will be helpful to him through life.

Please share any other comments you have about cFitness Academy or your Carone Learning course.

I have really enjoyed my online class so far, I would definitely recommend it.

Here’s what Joe’s teacher had to say about him: 

“Joe has over some so much in the time he’s been in this course. Between serious health issues and learning difficulties, Joe has proven he has tenacity!”

In Joe’s Family and Consumer Science class there is a unit on decision making. Joe has had to make some really hard decisions, because of his health, for such someone so young.

Responses to questions about making difficult decisions:

1. What was the difficult decision you had to make? What made it difficult?

I decided to cancel going on a trip to Los Angeles with my school. I wasn’t feeling good and I knew the trip would be too hard for me. I wanted to go on the trip, but I didn’t feel that good.

2. Describe the process you used to make this decision.

My stomach doesn’t feel that good, so I had to cancel. I knew that the group would be doing a lot of walking and I knew that I would be too tired. My parents took out travel insurance so we wouldn’t lose the money that we paid for the trip. If I stay home, I can keep doing my IV feeds that help me feel better. We did IV feeds when we went to Florida for Christmas and it was hard to get the medicine delivered and set up the pump, so I knew it would be really hard to do in a hotel in LA.

Just as all of our students are unique, we think Joe is pretty great and we’re proud to have him in class! Thanks, Joe!
