Back in 2007 I wrote the following:
My intentions in creating a blog stems from my interest in pursuing a doctoral degree in the next few years! This blog shall serve as a vehicle that will allow my thoughts about bilingual/bicultural education to flourish and develop to what eventually will be my dissertation! I hope that I can create honest & intellectual conversations with fellow bloggers who might have an interest in what I am posting.
Now that it is 2014:
I have chosen a research topic for my dissertation or perhaps it chose me! I am analyzing and writing about an ethnographic study that took the course of 4 years to accomplish. I am looking at the ways heritage language learners co-construct their and each others identities in a two-way dual language program.
During the last 2-3 years I stopped writing on this blog because I had to give the majority of my attention to my family and the PhD. Now that I am “simply” writing the dissertation I intend on posting about our adventures abroad (in Guayaquil, Ecuador), the trials, joys, & tribulations of raising 2 bilingual girls, & continue sharing about my experiences of living a bilingual life.
