Greetings From Beyond Grad School

Well, I finally finished my biggest project!  I completed my 56 page thesis and will be marching in the graduation ceremony this May!  It feels amazing to have completed this labor of love, and to slowly reenter the life I had to somewhat set aside.

What does reentry look like?  For starters, I have been able to read for pleasure again, and have completed 5 books since the end of grad school!  I also joined the Marin Golden Threads and have been exploring new skills and projects in embroidery and other needle arts.

My work life has been keeping me busy as well.  I currently wrangle a wonderful class of fourth graders at a fantastic public school in Marin County.  Life as a first year teacher has been full of work, but it has been very joyful work indeed!

This is the year of “finishing.”  Finishing books, finishing projects, and finishing my reentry into “normal” life!
