Best of Luck with your studies. I left college in my sophomore year and didn't go back until 13 years later. Went from an Astronomy/Computer Science double major in the early 80's to a Humanities degree with an education minor followed by a Master's in Elementary Education. I think we have an advantage when we go back at an older age. We know what we want out of life and our education. I think we also appreciate what the learning will do for us in the future a little more than someone right out of high school. We'll be here for you through the whole experience if you need us.
Oh yeah - isn't if fun to help out in your daughter's class. I volunteered in my oldest's 5th grade class and she loved that I was there every week.

Hello everyone! I have subbed in Wyoming for the past 5 years. I had been volunteering in my daughter's classroom a couple times a week and really enjoyed it. There was an article in the local newspaper about the shortage of substitute teacher's in our area along with the requirements to get certified. I thought I would give it a try. I loved it. When I originally went to college in my 20's I had no idea that I would enjoy being around the kids so much. So, I pursued a degree in Biology. After three years I decided that Biology wasn't for me and got my M.R.S. instead. Subbing has allowed me the flexibility I want to be a mom to my 12 year old daughter. I just renewed my substitute certification for another 5 years. The communtiy college here just starting offering a complete elementary education degree this year. I am going back to school this semester to earn my degree. (Wish me luck!)
