A Personal Celebration

I apologize for not blogging these past couple of weeks, I've been a little busy. I graduated with my Masters in Reading Education from East Carolina University on May 4th....this officially certifies me as a K-12 Reading Specialist. Even though I completed my program via DE, my husband and parents convinced me to "walk" and I'm so glad I did. It was a great day with my family there to support me... my Dad even flew out from California and surprised me. Graduation day began with the university commencement at 9am, a MAEd-READ graduate reception at Dr. Swaggerty's house at 2pm, the College of Education commencement at 8pm, followed by one last celebration at Krispy Kreme at 10pm...YUM!!!. We got back into Raleigh at midnight. Thank you to all my friends and family that supported me along the way over the last three years.  Being a full-time teacher, wife, mother of two girls, blogger, iPhonographer, pinner, crafter, jewelry maker...taking the 39 units, one class at a time was certainly the only manageable way to do it and keep everyone, including me, sane and happy! ;-)  

 So, onto more posts about growing readers one best practice at a time.
