I have been a student off and on for a long time. What I want to really show my children is you never stop learning. You can never KNOW everything. There will always be new and wonderful things to learn. Dominic's grandparents are in their 80's and they are very proficient with the Internet. Had they decided they were too old to learn how to use a computer or send an email they would miss out on a wonderful way to communicate with all the family they have all around the world.
When I was younger I was afraid of authority figures. I went to class, did my work and went home. I didn't ask questions, I just got along, got by. Even in college I hardly ever spoke to my instructors. How wrong oh how very wrong I was for doing that.
I have learned they are very wonderful tools for not only networking for future jobs but you learn so much about the people they are and the many stories some of them have to tell.
I took two Internet classes this semester and ran into a few snags with one class and emailed my instructor the moment things got bumpy and she was so every helpful.
Now as I find myself really struggling with Algebra I emailed my instructor and she once more was able to provide me with some information that has cleared my head.
I guess it took me all of these years to learn this.
Well, better late than never.
