This just in.
Harriet Richardson Ames fulfilled a lifelong dream by completing her bachelor's degree in education. She reached the milestone 3 weeks after her 100th birthday.
Someone should have told her she could have been a doctor by now. ( a la David Spade to Chris Farley in Blacksheep.)
Turns out this lady was a retired teacher.
Why had she been teaching all these years if she is just NOW getting her bachelor’s?
I think this says a lot about our public education system.
Evidently, when she became a teacher, you only had to have a 2 year degree.
Additionally, you had to own your own wooly mammoth for transportation.
No, but she did teach in a one-room school house.
She also served as principal, which she was probably over qualified for.
Mrs. Ames was given her diploma at her hospice bedside prior to her death on Saturday.
Now there was a lady with a plan of how to get out of paying back her student loans.
Boy is she in for a stark realization. I hear in heaven, just like on earth, not only are teaching jobs in short supply, but the pay sucks there too.
Plus, she’ll be required to obtain her Masters within five years of arriving.
