About Me

Hello class! I was Born in Brookfield Missouri, and reside there as I am taking these classes online with you. I was married for twenty two years before my husband left me for someone else. However, in that time I gave birth to two amazing kids and wouldn't change a thing. They are both boys, my oldest is graduating from college this Saturday may 9, 2015 from Missouri Western State University with a Bachelors Degree in Health and Exercise Sciences and an Associates Degree in Physical Therapy Assistant and I couldn't be more proud of him if I tried. He is 23 years old and it sounds like there might be a wedding in the next year or year and a half. My youngest is 13 years old and he keeps me busy with his sports and keeping up with my homework and working full time. I am a firm believer that if kids aren't involved in some kind of activities like sports, Dance, or Gymnastics they spend to much time on video games and also have to much time to get themselves into trouble possibly with alcohol or drugs or both. I chose the Applied behavioral science program because i wanted to council and help people but then I found out i was only six classes from a minor in criminal justice so i have added that also and opened up so many more doors. I enjoy helping people not just special needs kids, the less fortunate ones too that have went down the wrong path and are trying to come back to the right path, they need that help also and i honestly feel it would be awesome to help them and see the looks on their faces when they would take a step in the right direction.
