For the first time in 20 years, I have nothing due, and no due dates looming on the horizon. I feel at peace for the first time in a long time. I am sad about leaving LSU. Today the grad students and some of the faculty met me at Chelsea’s for a goodbye dinner. It was a bittersweet moment. I am ready for a new adventure. Next, I will start the Teach Baton Rouge program this summer for the next phase of life.
