Four years later we finally became parents. My work schedule evened out and I found my employer to be friendly and flexible. I was also trying to obtain my Masters in Education at the same time.

There are so many helpful ways to achieve your degree these days. I found that a majority of my classes were offered in a long distance learning format. Long distance learning can be done in a few ways.

The most popular – something that has been gaining traction for years – is via the internet or what is commonly referred to as online classes.

This option was extremely helpful. There were days where the only time I could study or read was during my child’s nap. I could not drive to a class or get child care so it was great for me. My Masters in Education is now complete via this great online, distance learning process!
