I wanted to share an inspiring blog posting about the value of online education, from a learner at Penn Foster Career Schools. The writer, a student at Penn Foster, found that online education offers the perfect balance for her by allowing her work, pursue her education and manage a family at the same time.
The writer was clearly energized and grateful for how online education was enhancing her life for the better. I myself, have been a supporter of online education since I took my first online class at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, CA almost 20 years ago.
How online education offers the perfect balance
Here is what the student has to say, “now I have a renewed faith! I can have a great career; I can further my education and still have a life. How? Well, I have Rachel Ray’s 30 minute meals, Clorox Clean-up Wipes, and the freedom of an online education!”
Let me add some words of encouragement to all of us who are looking to enhance our resumes and professional lives with new skills we develop through online education.
