I returned to college more than once as a single mother of young children. It wasn’t easy, but the payoff was worth it. I’m here to encourage you if you are considering returning to college or a vocational school in order to be a better provider for your children. You may be surprised how much better you feel about yourself as well.

Some thoughts to review:

1. What do I most enjoy doing that could be part of a job?

2. What was I good in during my school days?

3. What do others say I am skilled in?

4. What courses of study have I looked into at area schools and colleges?

5. What online courses of study could I benefit from?

6. Who do I know that I could talk with about the possibility of returning to school?

7. What would be the advantages of gaining a certificate or degree?

8. When will I begin?
