I graduated in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. I chose to put my degree on the shelf for the next 17 years, while I homeschooled my children. I always knew that I would continue my education when my children graduated high school. My daughter attended early enrollment classes at University of Mobile, while my son participated in the homeschool cooperative program at UM. After graduating high school, my daughter enrolled at UM and graduated in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in marine science. My son graduated high school last spring, and I enrolled in the graduate program in the fall. I am pursuing a master’s degree in marriage and family counseling. I am enjoying my time at UM and find the program both challenging and rewarding.
