Did you ever wonder what type of people make up a class at Granite State College? Of course I am talking about Early Childhood Education because that is what I teach, but the students in the evening classes at Granite State as are varied as the faculty. In my present class the youngest student is right out of high school. She is just starting her career and is interested in Early Childhood education. On the other end of the spectrum there is a mom with 4 children. She is a para professional working with special needs children. In between there are mothers with young children, one person interested in the behavioral sciences classes, young women who want to finish a bachelor's degree in elementary education, and several students who are just interested in adult education classes and taking a course to see if returning to college is right for them.
