As I approach the end of my Kenan Fellow year, I am surprised to realize how many ways it has impacted my practice. I knew that I would make contacts in the research world, and that I would write some new curriculum. What I didn’t realize is how much of a confidence boost I would gain. In the time since I completed my internship, I have taken on and completed a rigorous professional development experience, taken steps towards becoming a professional development trainer, volunteered to present some of my work to my colleagues, and am even considering applying for a new job that will use some of my newfound skills in curriculum design and mentoring. I’m not sure where I’m going next, but I know it’s going to be great, thanks to Kenan Fellows.
