« Still Hoping... | Main | Back to the future... »



I'm married to someone who doesn't have his degree, was wildly successful for 13 years in his chosen field but then cannot get employed in this job market because he has no piece of paper. Yes, he's finishing school now, but it's been a hard few years. Five years ago I'd still stand by not needing a degree. I have since changed my mind.

Life experience, life's work and contributions are agreeably independent of a piece of paper. Self worth has nothing to do with it either as far as I'm concerned.

But you are correct in saying it matters immensely to a hiring professional.

Loved seeing your pictures! I can call you Dr. Maurer if you want though I totally prefer Aunt Mary. :)

I am proud of you for getting your degree! Walt's mom went back to school and got her college degree after her three children were born and were in school. She was an excellent teacher.
