I really enjoy the opportunity to teach and work with adult learners, especially since I can connect with some of the struggles that many of them might face. First, many participants in the Adult Degree Program have full-time jobs. I certainly understand the challenge that creates since I worked full-time while earning my own graduate degrees. Second, some of our students are parents, and as a parent myself, it is fair to say that coursework is much more challenging when you are also responsible for your children’s needs. Despite these challenges and others, students in our program have recognized the value of education and chose to take advantage of the opportunity that JMU offers. Through perseverance, they earn a college degree and that is certainly worthy of respect.
