Very good thinking! And so true. I find that kids that don't care about school have parents that don't value school so how we act towards education does impact and rub off on our kids!

Thanks so much for the encouragement and inspiration. I need it.

It was great to volunteer in my daughter's class! I have always thought that if I show her that her school is important to me it will be important to her.

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!)
