I have always had a restless spirit. I embrace change. I have lived in eight cities and worked at seven different institutions, but when I was in my late 50’s, and staring down retirement, I began to feel that my career was winding down. If I wanted to start over, who would hire someone at my age, especially someone without an advanced degree? And what were the chances I could earn another degree after being out of school for so long. That is exactly the type of impossible challenge I have always relished. I decided to see if I could find an online degree program. One that fit my career and one from a school I had actually heard of. I settled on the online, Master of Education program from the University of Georgia. I applied, was accepted, and eased into college life – graduating the same year I turned sixty. I had been around, traveling to the ends of the earth and living more than half a century, and I figured I knew all I needed to know. Imagine my surprise when the lessons of college life in the digital age began and I managed to graduate – with honors.
