A HUGE Thank you to everyone who filled out a survey for my dissertation! You all are great! It's amazing when people come through for you! Also, a special thanks to Smokkee, Waffles and Carmen for pimping the survey!
So, now all I have to do is score the survey and get the data into a spreadsheet for my Chairperson. Oh, that's only 216 individual assessment instruments! LOL
Anyways, school is almost over for me - only 2 more days, including today! Then, we are off to Florida! We are loading the truck on Friday and leaving Cali on Saturday. Good times. I will definitely have more time to blog after school is over! And, will blog from the road.
Can't wait to start my internship. I will be working with kids ages 5 to about 10 or 11 at a residential day treatment facility. These kids are supposedly in real trouble. The schools won't even take them in any longer for educational purposes. One day a week I will commute to Tampa to a residential treatment program for teens and kids. These kids have been removed from their homes and are also severely emotionally disturbed. Do you guys remember a while back a story in the news about some kids found in Florida that were kept in cages by their parents? Well, those are the kinds of kids that I will be working with. These kids' stories are so sad, but I am really looking forward to working with them. It's challenging, yet can be very rewarding!
