Tonight I had the opportunity to attend a board meeting at Mt. Sac and introduce myself to the board. I normally would not participate in anything that involves me talking about myself, but part of my homework for the EDD program is to attend a board meeting and observe the governance structure of a community college. Although it was technically cheating for me to go to a meeting at the school I work at, I am going to overlook that fact and check this one off the list.
I feel incredibly blessed because not only did my mom go with me in a show of support, but three of my cohort members went as well. I know that it is a requirement, but once I mentioned that I was going to be acknowledged at the meeting, they jumped at the chance to go and support me.
I tell anyone who will listen that I would have stayed in Scotland had I known how things would have turned out last year, but if I had stayed, I would have missed out on the chance to get to know and grow with these people. I know that I am exactly where I need to be on my educational journey.
My mother had her camera (which should come to no surprise to anyone who knows her) so here are some pictures for the world to enjoy
This week is almost over, and that means it is almost time for Scotland. I’m giddy with excitement. I have two papers and 3 more articles that need to be compiled, but I have 4 days and an 11 hour plane ride to get my butt in gear and get the work done.
Of course, I could always go to the library in Scotland to work……
