It was a great day in the Diesel household today as I received my Master's degree. The commencement ceremony was really satisfying - even more so than whenI received my Bachelor's degree.

Congratulations to all of the other college graduates on the board! You should be very proud of your accomplishment.

To those who are working (or plan to work) towards a degree: Work hard and stay focused. Graduation is a great life moment and one I hope all of youexperience.

My ultimate goal is to be an Education professor at a university. The next step will be getting accepted into a Doctoral program and completing mycoursework and dissertation.

Salary depends on the university. At smaller schools, you are looking at around $55,000 to start; larger universities might start you closer to $70,000. Themoney is o.k., but not the prime motivator for most professors. I want to do research on urban education issues in hope of coming up with some ideas as to howwe can level the educational playing field such that urban students have all the advantages that exist for suburban students. If I can do that, who cares aboutthe money?

Congratulations! Isn't it great to sit in the ceremony and know that everyone in the building is super happy at that moment?

Not necessarily. It helps, but many universities will accept you into a Master's program if they think your educational background and gradesindicate you can be successful in their program.
