I worked hard for that goal. I taught at several campuses and several schools. I taught in person, online, blended courses. I taught developmental ed, first year writing, and bachelor degree level courses. I attended more PD than required. I funded two trips to national conferences. I applied to present at a conference and it was accepted. I asked to be appointed to a committee for NCTE and was accepted. I tried innovative things in my classes. I collaborated with colleagues. I researched how to teach college writing vs high school. I never stopped.
Today, it paid off. Today I found out that I beat out over 200 applicants to be selected as the newest tenure-track professor at the community college in my area. I am so happy. So honored. So proud.
