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!
