It's finally here. Tomorrow is graduation day. This is the culmination of 18 months of hard work. Now, the challenge is getting that first position. Sometimes, I think the coursework was easier than the job search. One of the things I know is that simply having a degree does not make one a strong school administrator. So, my question is, as always, do I have what it takes? That is the question that I am certain is asked by many when they are at this crucial turning point. In reflection, I know that I could have done more during my internship. I'm not sure I really understood what it entailed. In retrospect, I would have sought out more opportunities for direct service. Still, it was a learning experience and I am grateful for that. I know, however, that being in the office will require adjusting to a very steep learning curve. That being said, though, I am happy to finally graduate and get my degree. I'm also thankful for all of the family who are here with me. It's going to be a good day.
