Words of Wisdom

Posted by Debby on 1st August in It’s the Process

As mentioned in a previous post, I recently attended an alumni conference for my grad program. There were representatives there from almost every group from cadre 1 through 14 (the ink was still wet on their diplomas!). The new cadre was starting their learning adventure and we had many opportunities to welcome them into our […]

A Tale of Two Conferences

Posted by Debby on 25th July in It’s the Process

There are as many ways to approach education as there are children in school I suppose. Everyone has their opinion on what is best for the kids. In the past few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to experience an extreme contrast in philosophy first hand. I attended a very large, international education conference in San […]

Posted by Debby on 24th April in It’s the Process

Gotta admit, it was sort of cool to be profiled on the STEMinist site 🙂 The funny thing is that I didn’t realize the interview had published until I read about it today in the Post University newsletter that gets sent out every couple of weeks. How they picked it up, I have no idea! […]

The Education Quest

Posted by Debby on 26th February in It’s the Process

It’s been a decade since I started my masters program at Pepperdine and so much has happened since then. My life is in a totally different place from where it was at that point in time. An idea keeps bobbing up in the back of my mind, sometimes drifting closer to the surface, sometimes receding […]

Nothing is impossible!

Posted by Debby on 21st January in It’s the Process

Community is a powerful resource, be it for learning adventures or barn moving! As the article said “The reason most people think that something cannot be done is because they know that they can’t do it by themselves.” News report from Bruno, NE — In 1981, Herman Ostry and his wife, Donna, bought a farm a half […]

Time to move on…

Posted by Debby on 13th January in It’s the Process

I’ve been pondering for a while about how to write this post. There are people that know, and people that probably suspect, and other people that are going to find out when school starts on Tuesday and they drop by my office and wonder what in the world happened.
