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 and intellectual conversations with fellow bloggers who might have an interest in what I am posting.
Now that it is 2020:
What an incredible multilingual journey this blog has been! I went from blogging about my interest in being bilingual, raising a bilingual child and another multilingual child, completing a doctorate in bilingual and bicultural education to starting a tenure-track job focused on bilingual education and bilingualism. I would do it all over again! I intend on continuing to write about MY interpretations of a bilingual life. Specifically, how language intersects with class and race in places like the Central Coast of California where Mexico is a ~seven hour drive away. I am exploring other venues to share about bilingualism which includes local and national media, podcasts, guest posts, and consulting opportunities. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
