    I have been in the United States for three years. I’m so glad that I have class at Metro South! I’m lucky to have such a great teacher as Dale! My goal is to go to college. I would like to join a medical lab technician program.

    My name is Marcos and I am from Mexico. I currently take College Prep. In the future, I plan to go to college to study Automation Robotics or Electronics Tech. The most important part is to think you can do everything you want!
