I’m Back!

After 4 long months of full time student teaching and methods courses at night, I can officially say that I am done.  That’s right, D-O-N-E, done!

It’s not that I didn’t enjoy student teaching.  Despite how absolutely exhausting it is rewarding work and I love teaching.  I have learned so much in the last four months that at times, I thought my brain would explode.

Student teaching meant that I had zero time for genealogy.  And even if I did have time, I didn’t have the brain power.  I was just physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted from student teaching.

Yay!

But?  I’m done!  So it is back to genealogy I go.  This will be the summer of genealogy and my schedule is already getting exciting:

  • From June 6th – June 8th, I will be at the Southern California Genealogy Jamboree in Burbank, California.  I will be doing two talks with D. Joshua Taylor and I’ll be on a panel moderated by Janet Horvorka.  And?  My fiance will be coming with me too.
  • On June 18th, I will be speaking at South Bay Cities Genealogical Society on Brick Wall Boot-Camp.  If you are in the area, come on down!
  • On June 21st, I am getting married!  Yay, wedding!
  • Lots of time at the library and family history center too!  I can’t wait!

In summary: Let’s go family tree climbing!
