I am a mother of four teenagers looking to return to school. My oldest colleges second year of college herself and my second oldest will start in the fall. I want to continue my college education and become a teacher (English). I have worked extra hard this past year at a local community college and balanced life and kept my GPA over 3.7! My husband is a merchant marine and he works hard to support us, but I need to achieve my BS to teach. With two in college this fall, I will stop my learning if I can not find funding. My children come first, and they need to complete college. I truly appreciate everyone who has read this. Every penny counts.
