Teaching and grad school. I'm in an education PhD program, so I talk about school a lot, often in a whiny tone. I'm pretty sure that a PhD is the biggest waste of time, money, and energy a person can sign up for, but I want to see it through. I hope to work in higher education, helping at-risk students with reading and writing, and helping professors be better teachers. I'm not sure what my employment situation will actually be.

Right now, I teach in the developmental education program at my University teaching reading and writing to students considered "at risk." The further I get in my PhD, the more radical my views on teaching and learning become. I absolutely love being a college reading teacher.

My husband Brian (dh). We've been married for 7 years, through thick and thin. He is my best friend.

Myself! What else is a personal journal for, other than shameless self promotion??

I'm pretty generous about adding friends! Just drop me a note if you add me, ok?

I am striving to be sober. Sometimes I do great, sometimes I do.... less than great. I'm looking for other caring mothers and smart people who struggle with alcoholism.
