Kate Redmon, founder of Light & Salt Learning, has worked with struggling learners for over 15 years, teaching remedial math in her home state of Hawai’i, tutoring adults with disabilities, and as an adult education instructor. No matter the setting, her success in reaching non-traditional students remains constant, reinforcing her core belief that all students can succeed. In 2014, she founded Light & Salt Learning with the dream of providing high-quality open educational resources for GED instruction accessible to every learner. In the decade since Light & Salt has equipped thousands of struggling students and their instructors with the resources they need for success.


Strength for the Journey: Equipping Adult Learners for the Ride

The distinguishing mark of the adult educator is a fierce and abiding concern for the welfare of their students. We know our learners’ struggles and strive to help them overcome them to achieve their goals. But if we’re honest, some days it feels as if we care more about some students’ futures than they do; we’re all but carrying them to their destination. And, let’s face it, adults are heavy! Acting as trail guides who equip our students to ride solo is the key to their long-term success and ours.
