  • I have an Associates degree in Elementary Education. I work at an elementary school as a Parent Involvement Coordinator and Volunteer Coordinator. I also complete my junior and part of my senior year in the Elementary Education program. I feel like I use more knowledge that I gained in my Junior/Senior year than the knowledge that I gained with my associates degree. I don't know if I could do as good of a job if I just had my associates degree and nothing else.

  • Journalism, with a concentration in broadcasting. I've used it pretty much every day since landing my first TV job in 1986!

  • I would not be allowed to do my job if i didn't have the degrees that I have. I have a BA in music and a masters in education. I teach music in the public schools. You must have a degree in the field you teach in my state.

  • I have a degree in human rehab services with a psychology minor and a second undergrad degree in nonprofit organization management. I've written a few grants, but for the most part, I stick to proofreading textbooks now because the income is more steady. Still, the skills I learned in having to manage my time, write papers, deal with people, and do research come in handy for me.
