So, all you college-goin' mommas...

...what career are you pursuing? I am working on getting my Bachelor's in Social Work. Only 3 more years - then it's onto my Master's! Why are you so interested in that choice of study?

  • I am curently a sophmore at Purdue University studying the same. My interest have always been in social work. Wanting to change things and create different resources for people. Since I dont have a lot of money, I give and provide resources for my friends who are in crisis as much as I can.

  • I was going for my teaching degree.. but am going to take a year off to go to Continental School of Beauty, so I can find a better paying job around here while I finish my degree in teaching. (right now I make 22k a year.. and the average for cosmetology around here is 30-50k.). So pending on where I go, it will be a 8k-28k pay increase..

  • Early Childhood Education (Teaching 2nd graders, hopefully.)

    I chose this b/c I believe teachers play a huge role in the lives of children and I want to be a positive influence. The early years lay the foundation for the child's education.

  • I had been on the path to become a HS Spanish teacher, but that's fallen by the wayside. I haven't been in school in almost 4 years. I got my AA in Liberal Studies (with Honors, thank you very much!) and I'm thinking about going back for a Business degree.

    I never thought I'd get promoted to be a Corporate Training Manager at my last job, and I proved myself wrong! I was in charge of handling the training and development for 1/2 of the country! I made great money, and was able to hang with the bigwigs without a college degree. I was so glad to have a boss that believed in me, and it was something I've always wanted to do. If I get my Business degree or MBA, I'm sure to further my goals!
