Celebrating Persistence

While introducing myself during our new student festival today, it occurred to me that it is the anniversary date of my career at Iowa State. I actually began working in my first student affairs job in August as well (back in the Stone Age), so lots to celebrate this month. It's my half-birthday today too!

Professor and blogger Delaney Kirk celebrated her 28th year of teaching with a wonderful poem, so I was inspired to share a favorite quote with you.
Learning is finding out what we already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, and teachers. ~ Richard Bach
