So after both my Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts degrees were completed (engineering & education) I cannot say that I was all that well "educated." Instead, I learned that I have a LOT left to learn, and that well designed higher education programs should create a desire in the student TO learn, and teach then how to learn.

After those complicated sentences, I would encourage folks to never stop learning, and to help younger folks to desire to keep learning.

Am I correct in assuming that spelling wasn't covered in your MA in Education??

Either that, or you're a terrible typist without time or inclination to spell-check...

Wow. I thought I was the only language nerd on here. I guess there are more of us around than I thought.
