Today I received some … unsolicited, but interesting … career advice. It was suggested that a good next step for me would be a position that I have always felt was “beneath” me. Am I out of touch, or is she? Either way, it woke me up. I need to step up my higher ed game. I thought to myself … what would Dr. Morton do?
I came home and ordered a new book on amazon – Social Class on Campus: Theories and Manifestations by Will Barratt. I did a quick check at the library, not available. I decided the situation was dire, I must buy it. (Thankfully it was available on prime and in paperback). It was needed.
Stay tuned for my discoveries. More higher ed reading to come. If I think I am moving up in the world, I need to up my game and get my theory and language back. Thank you, unsolicited career advisor, I’m listening.
And, new me professional development goal #2 is to keep this blog updated – no one likes an inactive blog!
I can’t believe it has been a full year since Hope’s baptism. I have really enjoyed this year as Hope’s Godmother and I am excited for more to come. Hope has helped me grow in my faith in just this short year! Looking forward to having more of an impact on her spiritual growth in the years to come.
