I love working with adult students. When you know how long and hard they have worked and sacrificed to accomplish their educational goal, it is hard not to cheer them on. Education should be accessible for everyone; but adults often feel that they have “missed the boat” somehow by not going the traditional route to college. Creating an environment where returning to school is not a hurdle for these student is very important to me. With all that working adults have going on in their lives, making the decision to return to school should be the hard part, not actually attending.
