It's been real 2010!

Decked out in '80s gear on our final teaching day of the quarter
I realize we haven't had any posts this month (minus the profile of Adam...) - so first off, apologies! Secondly, this month has been a whirlwind. I cannot believe we're done! We finished off the quarter with an amazing week of team teaching. We had an unforgettable debrief lunch full of laughs, cries, DELICIOUS food and plenty of surprises - including but not limited to an impromptu "flash dance" for none other than the birthday girl, Ms. Bonnie Anderson. (Here's a link from her own blog capturing a bit of that chaos: ) We said our good-byes with a karaoke-filled, Secret Lover (think: Secret Santa) gift exchange in the Great Hall.

Jem-bay and karaoke - what a combo!
I feel so honored :)
Campus is pretty quiet right now. There are a few stragglers awaiting flights and such (including me) - but for the most part, everyone has departed for holiday celebrations and well deserved down-time at other locales.  It will be a couple of weeks of reflecting and recharging - but it will also be a couple of weeks apart from the people whom we have spent three intense months with.

This quarter has been an incredible experience. We have all learned so much about ourselves, teaching, and one another. I am so excited to see what the new year has in store for us!

Warm wishes to all for a family and fun-filled holiday! See y'all in 2011!
