I Got Into Graduate School!

Name: Bernice Saucedo Rubio

Major: Business Administration

Graduation: 2007

Story: I graduated in 2007, then attended a certification program to get my teaching certificate. I started teaching Special Education in August of 2008. This year I am entering my fourth year of teaching and I love it! Being a single parent this was a long hard battle. I was working forty hours a week, then attend night classes four nights a week. I attended one of A&M’s Career Fairs and actually got three job offers for teaching out of town! But my heart was here in Corpus so I joined Mathis ISD to get some experience, the two years later I joined CCISD. Texas A&M was like my second home. I started my master program about two years ago and hope to get back on track with that. Completing school in my forties I hope to be an example to my daughters. As I tell them, it’s never to late to go to school!

Advice: I always tell my daughters, “We create our destiny by the choices we make today”, and education is one choice that can only make our future better. I finished school when I was 47, my choice was either turn 47 and not have a degree, or turn 47 with a degree! I stumbled, dropped classes that scared me, but I always tried again.
