About Joanne


  1. My district doesn’t like WGU’s “non-traditional” approach and wanted me to jump through plenty of hoops to convince them that WGU wasn’t just a diploma mill. In the end I gave up and *still* don’t have a master’s degree, although there’s an online program through the University of Idaho that I really like.
