Good job!Sometimes I doubt whether or not I'm still sharp enough to absorb
all the new technology coming out but I manage to pass the training.I do not
retain the knowledge very well however unless I am using it regularly. Sad

It's that time of year, alright. Congrats, K-1. You make me feel old. Laughing

My kid's girlfriend/virtual wife just finished law school (no worries, she's not gonna be an ambulance-chaser or corporate shark, but practice International Law, which is stuff like negotiating boundaries, treaties, and agreements); and da kid himself is finally finished with all his classes and will only be teaching and doing research from here on out. (3 yrs down & 3 to go)

Thanks everyone!

My eldest grandson graduated from High School last week and enters college this fall (electrical engineering) I have to tell him Grandad set the bar real high Laughing See if we can't have a friendly competition for grades. My Grandfather used to give us kids $5 for every 'A' we earned (his version of keeping us inspired) That was pretty big money to a kid 30 years ago!

One of my brothers taught Middle and High School English in NY State public schools for 25 years and is now teaching English at Emma Willard The youngest owns a coffee shop, so we've done alright. Nothing wrong with teaching as a career, in fact I think its a noble craft, if done well. congrats to your son and 'daughter-in-law' cheers

$5 thirty years ago is about $17 now (says one of those online inflation calculators). Be prepared to shell out. Laughing Good on him for choosing EE. There's damn little in the 21st century that doesn't connect to technology somehow.

As for teaching is a noble career, definitely. The sort Da Kid is doing isn't a career sort of thing, though. It's just part of what grad students in his field have to do. No idea if he intends to stick with it or "go commercial" when he comes out the other end of the tunnel.

Well mainly because I avoided them then Laughing I went as far as intro to trig (sin cos and tan of a right triangle inside 90 degrees) I have no geometry, or 'advanced trig' background and those two will come first, then pre-calc and physics (also not taken in HS) However, I worked for 7 years as an airframe mechanic and 14+ years in construction, so I have the application side of it all 'down' cheers
