At long last my college days came to an end, as I received my Masters of Arts degree in Theatre Education on Saturday. The MATE program has been wonderful, I have learned a great deal, made some great friends, and feel fully prepared for a career in Theatre Education. I also got to go to Oxford last fall, as part of my graduate work, and of course had the time of my life there.
The ceremony was nice, albeit a bit long, and my family went to a lovely dinner afterwards. The pictures in the slide show come from my camera (used by Rachel), my mom's camera, and I borrowed a couple of pics from my advisor Rosalind, who was snapping away as well.
Just three days after Graduation, today, I received my first request for a theatre teaching interview. I have been applying to positions, counties, and schools for the past three months, but this timing was good. The interview isn't until June, and is at a public school in Waldorf.
I am thrilled to have my degree, thrilled to finish with a nearly perfect GPA (only one A minus in my grad career), and thrilled to be done with graduate school and college!
