A long time

It has been a very long time since I have written anything and that is because I have had an incredibly busy fall. I’m back in school at St. Bonaventure University and taking 9 graduate hours this semester. I also finished up an internship and submitted my portfolio which represented 641.5 hours of administrative experiences. In the past two months I have applied for a couple of administrative positions too. I’m not sure of my future direction but it safe to say that I have found new life in the past 15 months since I nearly retired.

I’m teaching students again this fall too and that’s been great too. My 8th grade class is reading and studying and applying Daniel Pink’s, “A Whole New Mind.” The 7th grade class has been studying digital citizenship and both groups of students have been enjoying Google Sketchup.

I’ve seen some incredible progress in the life of a young person for whom I asked prayer for last year. Those of you who prayed and remembered this young person have had a tremendous impact on his life. I covet your prayers too as I have several research papers due in the next few weeks.

Just yesterday I reconnected through Facebook with a Navy shipmate I had no contact with since 1973. Social networking can be such a great resource.
