In the 1960s, I was married with four children and enrolled in a master’s degree program. I frequently had a book in my hand while cooking over a hot stove.
At 35, I felt too old to be going through the graduation ceremony with young people, so I tried to get out of it. However, I was told I had to attend graduation or I wouldn’t receive my diploma.
I attended graduation and received my master’s degrees in comprehensive English and social studies. I went on to teach school for 20 years.
A person is never too old to pursue an education.
