Default Proud husband and I have to brag on my wife

Saturday afternoon I was able to watch my wife of 17 year achieve her dream. She graduated with a B.A. Interdisciplinary Studies. Not only that but she graduated with honors and completed her bachelors program in only 8 months. She’s now able to teach grades 4-8 all subjects and also got her ESL endorsement as well. She has also made a full recovery from her heart surgery back in May. I couldn’t be more proud of her and she is an amazing woman.

She started a new chapter this morning as a 4th and 5th grade English teacher.

No sir not a typo. She already had her associates of science from TCU and enrolled in WGU online courses. They have a format that as soon as you complete a class you move on to the next class. She already had 3 years of being an aid in a middle school working with kids that needed extra attention so she was familiar with the courses. She was working from 8am until 9pm Monday thru Friday and 9am to 5pm in the weekends during the summer. Then she would come from school (work) sit down at the computer at 3:30 and work until 10pm every night. She started her classes June first and completed all the course work first of October. She did her student teaching January thru April and was finished.

She actually finished faster than any other student has. In fact the school asked her to do testimonials for some of the more difficult courses she completed in 2-3 days for other students that were being discouraged. If I haven’t witnessed it myself it’d be hard to believe. And she still graduated with honors.
