Changes A-Foot!

I truly dread this time of year for one reason- saying goodbye. We have student workers who are leaving us to study abroad or to study elsewhere next year. Some are graduating and going on to do other things (like work and graduate school.) I hold them close to my heart and know that they will be somewhere else in the world and not here making me smile! Lucky World!

Meanwhile, on the last day of the school year, I am energized for new work for myself, new relationships, building deeper ones for those colleagues I already know, and reading so many textbooks and research this summer. Renewal, re-energizing, rededicating. May all of us live long and prosper!

Moving to the College of Education

In September, I will be moving to the College of Education to teach secondary curriculum to the MTE students, educational technology to CUESTE, and music methods to both. I am also teaching online the teacher-librarian cognate in the MS in Education program. I haven't gotten my schedule yet but I am sure it will be tons of fun and challenge. Needless to say, I am psyched! I have been in this position at Pierce for four years and it is fun working with students out here in the Electronic Research Center. My brain just needs to use the degrees I have worked so hard to attain. Student loans start in August so this change will help!

P.S. This is not my hood....just borrowed the pix!
