1) My doctorate degree is almost done! I am close to starting the implementation of my mindfulness research in 7 schools in the Minneapolis area this spring. After that, it will be analyzing and writing about my results and putting the final touches on my dissertation.
2) This fall I attended a workshop for entrepreneurs and realized that my work needs to be split into two places.
- Candace Burckhardt Consulting will be the place where you can find information about my education consulting, speaking, and professional development services. I will also be regularly writing and blogging about popular education reform and policy issues. Check out my first piece that was recommended by the popular health and lifestyle website, CTZNWLL, this week: Five Ways to Take Action After the Confirmation of Betsy DeVos
- The Teaching Nomad will switch solely to being about teaching abroad and advice for expat parents in finding schools.
My first guide will be on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. I will be heading down there next week to meet with school directors and teachers to learn more about school options in Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, and Tulum.
