The job application process is in full swing here. I am officially one week into my search. I have been home alone focusing on cover letters, references, and searching for new jobs. I am hopeful, and very excited for many of the prospects. To keep me grounded I have spent time making art when I need a break, and watching lots of Parks and Rec. Because we all need a Lesley to remind us that we got this!
Now that AJ and I are all moved in and settled in our cozy Fenway apartment, we wanted to start seeing all the sights.
Rockport was a great little town! An old roommate of mine always used to tell me about it. I was excited to get a chance to visit. We met so many artists, and took a little time to draw the little red shack, like so many artists before us.
We visited the Rockport Art Association and Museum which was fantastic. I was even able to find a bead store that offers classes called Seaside Boutique and Beads. I might try to reach out and see if I can teach a class there every once in a while. I think it would be a nice connection to the art community, and a good way for me to reconnect to my craft.
Our two lovely graduation days came and went! I couldn’t have done it without all these lovely ladies.
Last night we celebrated the end of our graduate school career with a cap decorating party!
I am so thankful to have had this experience, to have gained so many friends through my two cohorts, and to have learned from so many amazing mentors.
Thanks y’all see you at Graduation!
In the past month I have made strides towards my teaching certification. I officially passed edTPA, the bain of my existence for most of Fall Semester. Today I registered and booked my next and last two certification tests for New York State. It is an exciting prospect to know what things are moving in the right direction, and that test dates are in the books.
