So I went back to school late in life, at age 34 actually. I finished JC, earning an AA and then off to CSU EastBay for my BA in Liberal Studies with a minor in Human Development. The only drawback (or was it?) was that as a result of wanting to be educated I had to get divorced--he said it was him or school. That was a no-brainer. And here I am, I'll be 42 this year, hoping that my birthday finds me gainfully employed as a teacher. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a good impression was made where I student taught. I'd love to work there! So join me in some finger crossing, won't you?
