Learn about the benefits of adult education
Necessity is the mother of invention, they say. So then, what’s the mother of… RE-invention? Why not ask the 2015 National Teacher of the Year, Shanna Peeples? If not for the courage to make the critical life decision to re-enroll as a non-traditional adult student, Shanna would not have earned her teaching degree and gone on to earn the oldest, most prestigious award for teachers in America. She would not have met President Barack Obama, inspired thousands of other teachers and adult professionals, and taught countless students to succeed in life. By making the life-changing decision to reinvent herself as an adult student, Shanna changed her life, and many others, for the better. And as one of West Texas A&M University’s most successful non-traditional adult degree graduates, Shanna has the perfect pep talk to help you enroll, engage, succeed and soar in your life in 2016.
