I received my bachelors while being a wife and mother of four. It was not easy, however, the professors at Western were very helpful and they did what they could to make it possible to achieve my goals. Upon graduation, I have found a teaching job. I am teaching fourth grade and I love it. I accredit this to the type of education I received at Western. I would tell those planning on going to Western to stay strong and work hard. Everything will come together if you do that. It may be hard, but it's well worth it.
