What's next?

Some of you have just graduated, or are about to very soon. Others are on summer break and will get back to classes in the fall. And a few of you (brave and ambitious souls) are in accelerated programs and will continue with classes right through the summer! Regardless, when we are immersed in school, sometimes we can only see the work, we get so deep into it, we can't see beyond.

So today's question is, what's next? If you are graduating... what will you do to celebrate? Refresh? Re-energize? And what challenges are next on the horizon?

If you aren't graduating... take a step back and look at the big picture. Are you getting what you want from the program? Have you kept your focus while also allowing new ideas and pathways to emerge? 

And for my teaching colleagues who read this blog... what is next for us? How can we make the most of the summer and both restore and refocus, while also getting ready for next year?

Enjoy the trees... and look beyond...
