Observations From the Swamp Many folks think we live in the nether regions of the earth here in Toledo, Ohio. However, Toledo is the birthplace of jazz great, Art Tatum, not to mention many other distinguished and accomplished AfrAms (African-Americans) who often remain unheralded and unrecognized in their home town. This swamp is a petrie dish swarming with undiscovered talent that the world may never know because there are too many slimey creatures down here in the swamp pulling down anyone who tries to climb out and come out into the warmth of the sun. This diva climbed into the swamp with one purpose - to rid the world of slime!

Looking back & moving forward

Rate: 4 Flag

2012 was a busy year for me. Started back to school with high hopes that were quickly dashed when I was the only graduate assistant accepted to present research at a national conference in Burmingham, Alabama last November. I've been accepted to present my small research project locating community-based after-school programs teaching 21st Century Skills at a state conference in Akron, Ohio next month. Got accepted to an international one on educational technology coming up in New Orleans in March to present a research design on increasing parental involvement in poor neighborhoods. 

Also, celebrated one year with my new love 12/28. We don't see each other enough, but we're working things out.

 Just got back from Dallas to meet with a friend about an upcoming book signing. Start spring semester tomorrow. I'm going to be so busy from now until May. 

 Glad to be able to post on OS again.

Great title to your post--and 2012 was VERY busy for you. I don't know where you get your energy. I hope OS is coming back to us. I've missed it.
What a very fruitful year, Diva. Best wishes for a healthy, happy 2013, and very best wishes with the wonderful work you're doing, and with your new love!
It sounds like the new year is getting off to a fantastic start for you. Please post about it; good news is so much better to read about than bad.
