Up at seven. Get kids to school. To Starbuck’s for an Americana (survival by espresso). Head to the college for classes or studying, depending on the day. A quick lunch. Run much-needed errands. Pick kids up from school. Homework, then fix dinner. Unless there’s a class that night, then it’s a crockpot dinner. Get reading done for tomorrow’s classes. Finally, to bed for a good night’s rest before the next day.
A day in the life of Jamie Skidmore, non-traditional student at CNCC-Craig, may seem like no cake walk to you, but to her this is everyday life.

While traditional students are able tobocus most of their attention on the task of learning, non-traditional students have the rest of life drawing their focus in multiple directions at once. They may have a family to raise, a marriage to make work, or perhaps a career they are trying to keep intact.
