Hello everyone, After mulling this over for some time, I have retired "Capella Rocks" and have decided to use my real name in this forum, which most regulars know already. I'm Shawn. I'm a business instructor and division chair at Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwa Community College, located outside of Hayward, WI. I teach a number of business courses using several different delivery options: traditional classroom, interactive television, and online. I'm currently in my data collection phase of my dissertation through Capella University. I'm studying why former deployed National Guard soldiers in a particular unit left the military. I plan to complete the data collection by the end of May, with a goal to be Phinished by December 2009. For those who not familiar with Capella, Capella is a proprietary online institution. My MBA was earned in an evening program through the University of Akron, and my BA was earned traditionally as a youngster after high school. I am also a dutiful husband to a sweet wife, along with 7 children. We homeschool our children, and our two oldest have taken college classes through Clovis Community College, along with CLEP and DSST examinations as part of the homeschool. Needless to say, there is never a dull moment in our house. There are a great many resources on this board, and a lot of expertise. I'm thankful for the info on CLEP, DSST, and Clovis CC that I picked up here - so when I post info, it's my way of saying thanks! I'm also greatful to those who have finished degrees - I love reading the "Mandatory I'm done threads! Have a great day!
