About the Author:

Back to School for Grownups was established in 2009 by Laura H. Gilbert, PhD. The book, website and materials are based on her own back-to-school experience and many years helping others do the same. Laura's passion for adult learners began when she returned to school as a single mother of four and was inspired by the life stories and perseverance of her peers. Today, having completed four back-to-school journeys, Laura shares her energy and insight about the adult learner experience as a university instructor, consultant, speaker and coach.
