to make a difference

I was inspired by my children to return to school after being out for over 10 years. I wanted my children to get a better education than I did. I was working in the canneries during the summers and one day I watched an interview on tv about a program that sounded encouraging and so I made an appointment for an interview. I was accepted and so I started on a new journey which was something I never regretted. I graduated in 1980 with a bachelor of education degree
