Returning to Learning

Most adults feel apprehensive about returning to school and are concerned about how they will perform academically. The truth is that most adults do very well (just as well as they did when they were in school before, if not better) and most really enjoy it. Know, too, that teachers really like having adult students in their classes. Adults bring to the classroom "real world" experience, are able to connect ideas to other concepts, contribute interesting insights to the exchange of ideas, and ask questions that stimulate discussions.

Returning to learning?
