Veronica already had an AA degree plus “lots of hours I can’t use.” But while working as a teacher aide at Doss she decided she wanted to be more involved in student academic performance and become a teacher.
“I’ve been observing teachers, so I know what kind of teacher I want to be.”
Previously she was driving to Marble Falls two nights a week and for summer school. Having HCUC makes it closer and more convenient. She is now a full time student, along with helping her husband run the family ranch.
“When we first moved here this opportunity didn’t exist. I am an advocate for having this school here.”
She wanted to say one more thing: “It is important to tell readers that I am older. If I was walking around on a large campus at my age would be a awkward!”
