What is Your Level of Education

What level of education have you completed or are currently working on?

As for myself, I have a BA in Communication, my studies focused primarily on rhetoric and linguistics. I am currently working on an MA in Human Behavior.

BA in Communication
Almost an M.Ed in Language Arts and Literature. All I lack is student teaching, and I can't finish it now due to the need to hold a full-time job.

Dropped out of the school of hard knocks but managed to get a Masters in B.S. I'm also a Professional Hitman. I once saved a girl named Mathilda, she was a 12-year-old girl living in New York City who was exposed to the sordid side of life from an early age: her family lived in a slum and her abusive father worked for drug dealers, cutting and storing dope. Mathilda didn't much care for her parents, but she had a close bond with her four-year-old brother. One day, she returned from running an errand to discover that most of her family, including her brother, had been killed in a raid by corrupt DEA agents, led by the psychotic Stansfield. Mathilda took refuge my apartment. (I was her neighbor) I took care of her. (with a certain reluctance) She discoved that I was a professional assassin, working for Tony, a mob kingpin based in Little Italy. Wanting to avenge the death of her brother, Mathilda made a deal with me and became my protégée in exchange for work as a domestic servant, hoping to learn my trade and take out the men who took her brother's life. However, a parental affection developed between Mathilda and I that changed my outlook on life and career. The rest is history. They made a movie out of it. Some of you guys may have read the book in college.

Some college. It has made my career path as a programmer a tad difficult but I now have quite a few years of experience and am doing fine.
My kids are going to college.

have 3 years worth of college credits, was going for a six year degree in environmental engineering. Never finished due to family issues and years spent traveling the world running from said issues.
Sat down and thought about it one day. I can't really decide what I want to do with myself, so I haven't gone back as of yet. The having memory issues also play into it. but eh.

I am actually ok with my life for the most part at the moment.

Ms. MillCreek is an elementary school teacher with 17 years experience in the Seattle area. Right now, the teaching profession is pretty tough to find a job in this area. Due to the economy and cutbacks, a lot of the local districts have laid people off. By the union rules, it is by seniority, so if you have been teaching for less than five years or so, you may not be offered a contract.

It used to be that nursing and teaching always had jobs. Not so anymore.

Yes, but I'm not sure the study of bi-plane technology is much to brag about.
