The past 14 months have brought us to this point! Tonight is a small celebration in what feels like a L..O..N..G journey. My classmates and I have completed our last class in our coursework towards earning an educational doctorate. The Liberty 018 Cohort from William Woods University has met almost every Thursday night at Liberty North High School to discuss leadership styles, redesign school districts, and evaluate educational programs. (Don't forget the qualitative and quantitative analysis that was in the mix!)
Tomorrow we will begin preparing for the next phase of the program. Our day long comprehensive final will be here in 5 short weeks. This is followed by the independent writing of dissertations. This group has definitely taught me to persevere. Over the last 14 months, we have bonded as classmates, colleagues, and friends. We have seen each other through life's milestones and heartaches. Through it all we remember to just keep going and laugh...a lot!
