Hello, Internet! It’s been awhile since my last update. I’ve been busy finishing up my MPS degree, managing four separate 21st Century Learning Community programs, advising team of nine teachers, teaching my own middle-school filmmaking classes, overseeing CMP’s Media Magic, Radio Uprising and Media Monsters programs . . .the list goes on and on. But as I always say, it’s better to be busy than the other thing!
Last December, I received the most exhilarating news. I’d been selected as the Fall 2013 Outstanding Graduate for the SUNY New Paltz Department of Education in the Humanistic/Multicultural MPS graduate degree program. Winning this award was particularly poignant for me, I’ve been working on my two Master’s degrees (while working full-time!) for a grand total of 12 semesters/7 years. I came to New Paltz in 2007, and at the end of my long journey, it’s incredibly gratifying to be recognized for my my hard work and efforts (and, I’m just going to say it, ENDURANCE). I’m honored and delighted, and it’s a perfect way to end my grad school career. For now. 😉
Here I am at the award ceremony, with Dean Michael Rosenberg of SUNY New Paltz’s School of Education.
