The clear marker of one HUGE feat: Joe is Done. He is all about the bragging that there is no homework, no more group projects, and he is officially able to join the working world. He already has a few sub jobs lined up for the month and some adventures planned with little ones. He is free. He came home with balloons and cake and a smile that follows so many years of hard work. Joe is done with his B.A. in liberal studies, multiple subject credential, and moderate/severe credential.
And at the same time we are getting ready to LAUNCH into the world of doctoral studies. This is a team effort. I couldn’t go to class or leave my family, if everyone wasn’t on board. So as Joe celebrates, I linger in anticipation and fear over the next three years. This is our commitment. What lies ahead?
But I will admit I am excited to have homework, group projects, and maybe even let go of one of the two jobs I hold. We see this as an investment and a preparation for the fast changes happening in education- who really knows what job I could have in the future?
