Spring 2017?

Yes, will spring of 2017 ever arrive seems to be the question being asked in the Twin Ports area of Duluth-Superior, maybe we just need to jump ahead and get some summer weather. The trees are showing little sign of leaf eruption, however the grass has greened up and is growing with all the rain.

I’ve restarted my work on completing a masters degree this year and completed 2 courses during the spring term. I’m currently working on a Masters of Science, Education Instruction degree through an online program offered by the University of Wisconsin – Superior. This week marks the start of the first summer session and I’m enrolled in another 7 week course for this term, on completing the course I will be half way to completion of my masters degree. I was fortunate to be able to transfer in some of my UND grad credits into the program and I’m already scheduled for 2 additional classes for Fall semester.

Relocated to Superior WI

Hello everyone! I haven’t posted a blog for a long time, but since I have made some changes in my life here I am posting a blog. I’m on day 1 of week 3 at my new job at UW-Superior. Things are going well so far, yeah!

I have moved to Superior WI, and now live in a 2 bedroom apartment with a sparse collection of furniture. So as a recap of my last 1/2 year… was cut from my teaching job, worked on my house and finding a new job for the past 6 months, went through seeing my last child graduate from High School do become an official empty nester. The thing is I moved the nest. Next is to sell my 100 year old home in Crookston. more up dates to come!

Learning Through Teaching

Socrates on wisdom –
“Well I am certainly wiser than this man. It is only too likely that neither of us has any knowledge to boast of; but he thinks that he knows something which he does not know, whereas I am quite conscious of my ignorance. At any rate it seems that I am wiser than he is to this small extent, that I do not think that I know what I do not know.” ~ Socrates

My 2 cents
With that quote, I have to say…
“I know enough to know when I don’t know everything about something, but I have the capacity to learn new things. ¬†When I learn something well enough to teach it to others, I have gained an understanding or “wisdom” that has value to others.” ~ Del Wright
