Last night MrsDoF graduated from Heartland Community College with an Associate of Arts Degree in Education.
It’s been a difficult road for her, combining current classwork with what could be transferred from her earlier education experiences over two decades ago. She has been a Licensed Practical Nurse, an Emergency Medical Technician (and ambulance driver – forget your stereotype about women drivers!), and until recently a child care worker. This last is a job of importance that far exceeds the respect it receives.
