June graduated this Spring with a double major in Psychology and Russian. Which kind of sounds like she went to school to become a Cold War spy. I tease her about this.
What she is really interested in is Behavior. The Russian was something she just did for fun, I guess. Everyone's idea of fun is different.
This girl has been working hard at school and abroad for several years and even lived in Russia for a full year last year. It was a wonderful experience but I think it was also a little hard to take when the sun was only visible for 45 minutes a day.
She has also been Teachers Assistant all this year for a class on Behavior Modification, where the students pick something they would like to change about themselves and then proceed to make a plan and execute it. She had a lot of fun watching and helping students use themselves as a tool for learning a complex subject. She is a wonderful teacher and we are very proud of her!
She has big plans for the near future but she will be home and flexible for the next 9 months.
So what do you get a girl like this for a graduation present?
A puppy of course!
