Life as a student/wife/mother-to-be/school counselor has been very hard these past two months. Not only am I fighting morning sickness while still taking courses, but I’m also in the middle of practicum, preparing to take my licensing exam in December.

This has been a unique semester so far. To begin with, we had to push back our first course because of Hurricane Harvey. This devastating storm affected so many across the Gulf Coast, but Lamar worked with students and staff during the disaster.

Do you ever have those days as a mom or dad when your kids will not leave you alone? I have many days like that with six-year-old twins. When you are deep in thought or working on a crucial part of your paper, even a small distraction can cause chaos in your brain.

Life is an amazing thing, with twists and turns and signposts along the way. Some of those we stop to notice and note, sometimes not. I always begin my posts or writing with my reflection about some of the most important things I have learned and/or applied upon the journey of the assignment, topic�whatever it is.

This has been a tough month with everything going on with Harvey, but I am glad to say things finally fell in line with classes. I am on my 2nd year of my master’s in clinical mental health counseling, and I am pleased to say that I am almost done with my consultation class.

Writing this month is sort of hard because Hurricane Harvey has effected Beaumont and so many students and staff members at Lamar University. Our classes are postponed a week because of this disaster, and although the rains have stopped, more damage from the floods is occurring.

As this month comes to an end, I am excited to announce that I am halfway done with my Master of Education in Teacher Leadership. After the devastating disaster of Hurricane Harvey that impacted this area, it feels good to finally get back into the routine of things with family, work, and school.

I am a student, not an expert. I don’t pretend to be. Or maybe I do. I sometimes need to sound like an authority on a topic, an author, or a new concept. I put together the little bit of knowledge that I have gleaned from my readings and research and try my best to sound…well…smart.

In May of 2018, I will have completed my graduate study of Educational Leadership with Lamar University. Many teachers become administrators because they are exhausted from being in the classroom and need the break, when in reality, there is no break in the field of education.
