Welp, now I've done it. My BS in Adult Education from Bellevue University was conferred this morning. I earned a straight 4.0 throughout the 18-month cohort, but since it was all online and transfer credits / CLEP tests I won't receive any honors (not that this was why I went to college in the first place). As far as I know, I'm the first one on my side of the family to earn a degree. I probably won't ever catch up to my wife, though. She's currently working on her second Master's and will follow up with a terminal degree in her field. My oldest daughter is almost halfway through her own BA degree and hasn't even graduated high school yet (she's in her school's Running Start program).

Now it's on to looking for education-focused and/or curriculum design jobs in the DoD. My degree and experience lines up perfectly with GS-1740 and -1750 jobs. I've been on usajobs quite a bit lately. It will be nice to finally move on from the GS-9 level of pay I've been stuck at for the last decade.

I'm not sure if I'll pursue a Master's in the field. My professors think I'm solid Master's material, and would probably be a strong Doctorate candidate as well if I decide to go that far - but I'm not too interested in joining the formal academia / research publication side of things. If I pursue my Master's, it will mostly be so that I can teach at the college level - probably in online classes. Which wouldn't be a bad gig to have in retirement, honestly. Pull down a pension while teaching a class on the side to have something to do and have a little extra money doesn't sound like a bad way to spend the golden years.
