Much privilege means much responsibility

In Tuesday’s post was a letter from TeachNZ offering me a full year’s study leave.  My initial reaction was to whoop with joy.  That quickly became a deep sense of gratefulness.  Four days later that has transitioned to being a little overwhelmed.

My three years of part time Doctor of Education studies have mainly had personal responsability attached.  With such organisational belief and investment in my work, there is a whole new layer of responsibility and expectation.

Privilege has such a lot of responsibility and accountability.  I just want to get going!  After waiting from early June when the applications had to be in, to late August when the recipients were announced, was a terribly long three months.  However, between receiving notification late August and going on leave mid-December will almost be as difficult.

Can’t wait to get going!
