Wish me luck…


I passed and it was a great experience. 

Tomorrow morning I will defend my dissertation, “The Sound of Silence: Educators managing and reproducing heteronormativity in a middle school setting.”

Wow am I nervous.

  1. Not just “good luck,” but “kick butt.” And have fun. The defense is time for you to demonstrate just how thorough you’ve been in conducting your dissertation.

    Good luck! Remember that you know more than they do about your topic. It sounds like an interesting one.

    I am so impressed and proud! I wish that I could be there. Good luck and show them that you are the smartest person in the room. Then come and tell me how to do it 🙂

      OMG Jeff !!!!! It was one heck of an end to such a long struggle. Take five years of everyone telling you a study isn’t possible and then telling you there is no real way to talk about your findings and then have it end in a room full of people telling you the study was great.
      Now that is cognitive dissonance.
      Pain in the ass for five years – hero for a day. Worth the trade? Yea I guess 🙂

  4. Wow!!! Congrats!!! You must be so proud of yourself! I can’t wait to have my day, too… I still have quite a way to go, but my day will come.
