For the next little bit you may be finding out about what I've been doing for the past 6 months. I am hoping to have some time to go through my pictures and I will share some of my favorites.
My last quarter of classes (the one I just finished) is affectionately called Final Block (said with a certain amount of dread) by those in the department. You have 5 classes with all of the same people and it is really busy. Not terribly hard or new material, just putting everything together that we have learned in the past two years. And applying it. And rationalizing it. Way more work than you would ever try to do when you were actually teaching. Needless to say, by the end of the quarter, you either love or hate the group that you are with.
Luckily, we all got along really well together! We were friendly and supportive but not so close that there were hurt feelings and gossiping. After the end of the quarter we all went out for Mexican food to celebrate. Here is a picture of all of us.Starting with the front left and moving clockwise: Chloe, Emily, Traci, Laura, Me, Kailyn, and Emily. I will miss having a group of supportive peers!
