Course End!

Hello my fellow bloggers! What a great start to a new week. I just finished my doctoral course 2 days earlier. Not to worry though the next two start Thursday along with my new job as a literacy specialist.

I need 28 more blogger followers to meet my challenge goal by the end of June. Won't you help me and share my blog with  F&F? Please leave me an email if you connect a link to my blog and I will send you a special thank you!

A week today I get to see my son  and his fiance. He will be deployed shortly to Afghanistan. Please keep our family in your prayers! Marines first in, and he is infantry, Lance Corporal trained in speaking Dari... neeedless to say his MOM is worried!

     Course End

So long, farewell,... until we meet again!

Another doctoral course has come to an end.

Our fingers pecked wornout keyboards

The URL's we avishly hoard and store...

Opposing views what's old and new,

Migraines rolled and headaches grew...

I researched ZPD, and old Vygotsky

Traversed to technology and Prensky.

Dialectics and dialogues abound -

Eyes so bleary reading that I found

Myself using tear drops 3 times a day;

Carry on, persevere, that is the way.

Thread a needle and a discussion

No quotes without citations...

References and annotated bibliographies

I rather think at times I was contrary...

Computer glitches, poof it's all gone -

Explicatives pronounced , hang on!

Grab for that rope as you'll need it soon...

Another course or two... this summer's doomed...

I will embed myself not in lofty dreams

Nor strolling walks with ice creams.

I will sit outside and write,

Burning bug candles into the night.

So long, farewell, until we meet again...

This my friend and colleague is the end!
