Officially A Graduate!

I haven’t posted in awhile because of the chaos of life’s transitions, but I just wanted to let you know I made it!! I finished and graduated with a Masters Degree (and survived!). I’ve included some pictures of the 2010 Teachers College and Columbia University Commencement exercises.

I am thankful for…

…a husband who puts up with a crazy woman who sits in the bathroom playing with homemade fork pendulums…

…an advisor who encouraged me through the good, the bad, and the ugly…

…a friend who gets as nerdy excited as I do…

…two cohorts of friends to share the moment with…

…a dear friend to that will have the same undergraduate and graduate alma maters…

…a sister who has been with me every step of the way…

…a mom who is always willing to be a physics lesson guinea pig…

…a dad who taught me its cool to like science…

…grandparents who have supported me as the first family member to go to graduate school…

…a crazy university that celebrates together rain or shine…

…and an institution that encouraged me to be a far better teacher than I thought I could be.

Graduation marks a turning point in our lives as we are relocating to Las Vegas, Nevada in the next few weeks. I am certain that posts will be sparse, but I will be sure to share any nerdy adventures we have along the way!
