When I was considering going to graduate school, I knew the University of Delaware had a great reputation. Then when I looked at the MPA program, I really liked the flexibility and structure of the Career Enhancement Option.
I want to get my master’s degree because I think it will help my career. I also want to set a good example for my children. I’ve been in my field for 30 years and to my surprise, I have actually learned a lot of new things in my classes. It helps to know the big picture in terms of what public agencies face as they move forward.
I am a single parent so I’m always on the go with my kids: getting them ready for school, getting myself ready for work, looking after the kids in the evening and getting myself to class when I have it. I’m used to the hectic schedule by now!
I’m fortunate to have a very flexible employer, so I can take classes not only in the evening with the other part-time and mid-career students, but I also occasionally take classes in the afternoons or mini-courses on Fridays.
When I went graduate school, I hadn’t been a student for so long, but the transition turned out okay. My advisor, Dr. Auger, is an absolute saint. Some people have advisors; I have a guardian angel. Earning my degree has been a long process and she has been so supportive with all the changes in my life. I’ve also had lots of good professors too. Even though I’m a part-time student, I feel connected to the School, and with the other students in the cohorts along the way.
I manage to balance my classes with work and family. When I’m not coaching the kids’ softball games or attending swim meets, I even occasionally fit in some leisure time and get together with my good friends.
I’ve really enjoyed the program and I’m really looking forward to finishing and earning my degree!
