Well this last semester of undergraduate work is winding down. I have less than two weeks of student teaching left and I find that I have to admit – I am going to miss the kids. I’ve enjoyed being with these ninth graders from Union County High School, and they’ve taught me a great deal of what it means to teach.
But now it’s time for graduation and the end of undergraduate work. Yet, it’s not going to be the end of my learning experience. I’ve been accepted to Clemson’s graduate program. I also found out today that I was awarded a Fellowship. I was proud and excited to be one of the ten students chosen nationally for this Fellowship. I’m also excited because it means that the beginning to a new chapter is opening in my life. I’m looking forward to summer because now I can concentrate on finishing Book Two of Legends of Green Isle, “The Mirror Sliver.” Even though I am not very far away from 50, I have this feeling that my life is just beginning.
