Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.
Then about two years ago I found myself thinking outside my classroom and more about the larger picture and the impact I could have as an administrator within a school district. Again, I found myself looking for a program that could inspire and support me in my new endeavor. Here I am ready to graduate this month and take the SLLA exam......getting ready for the next chapter in my life of learning. Just know - it won't be the last chapter!
The best compliment I received recently was from a teacher who said, "Yvonne, you are an inspiration - because most educators at your age are thinking about retiring, but not you - what an inspiration you are to every teacher and student - truly living what a lifelong learner is!"
