I started reading this book because I have to write a reflection on it for my stupid education foundations class but then I realized who wrote the book, Jose Lalas. My thesis is one of the finalist to be selected to present at a symposium by this man. It’s crazy to think that MY thesis is even under consideration because initially, I was hesitant to enter grad school. I was fearful that I would fail horribly at writing a thesis. I have never been smart but I have always worked my ass off. I don’t want to seem like in tooting my own horn but is it okay to say that I am very proud of my accomplishment? I don’t know if that’s ok but I do owe a thanks to my family, friends, and professors that helped me through school. I know that at times I put my priorities above them and I’m sorry for that but I hope they know that I am grateful for them, thank you.
