Two degrees in 35 years

Having received my first degree in 1971, I spent thirty years focused on family and a teaching career. While teaching Mathematics at Northwest Community College, I had the opportunity to develop the college's first online course and decided at that time to become an online student. I enrolled in the MET program to pursue a Masters degree. Thirty-five years after my first degree, I received my second degree. I retired six years later.but will always cherish my experiences as a UBC student.
