I FINALLY WENT BACK TO SCHOOL
August 29, 2011
I have finally decided to go back to school to get my degree in Early Childhood Education, so that I can be able to teach childhood education to infants and toddlers to purchase my own daycare center to teach them in, along with some special needs children section within my center.

I came across some really nice colleges but they didn’t meet my needs and somewhere so far away. While looking I came across this college called Ashford University. I called them inquiring about school and spoke with a few people. I didn’t sign up right away I waited until the time was right I did my online research about the school making sure it was accredited. We have so many schools that get you to sign up and aren’t accredited and there’s nothing you could do about it after you have complete the course. I was very excited about the online reviews that Ashford University receives. I have finished two classes towards my degree here at Ashford University and so far it’s been a journey. I ‘m currently taking an English 121, it’s been a struggle. I not the best when it comes down to English, I’m really praying for God to send me some knowledge and understanding of this subject....
