I do still exist

For those who are still reading (and I do see that a few are still here), I am posting a very, very short summary, like one of those very short introductions I despise. I will try to check in more often but I cannot make any guarantees.
I have been teaching Hebrew for four years in the online program at Anderson University. I put a lot of work into this! It is a low-enrollment program; but the Hebrew courses have stabilized and this year I will have four or five in Hebrew III. This is a huge breakthrough--there are never that many students in second-year Hebrew, on or offline. Perhaps hard work pays.
I enrolled in the D.Min. program in 2016 and this is my final year. For my final project, I am studying the factors that contribute to student success in the online Hebrew program. The students are giving extremely good feedback!
I am looking at options for further education--I would really like to pursue a Ph.D. after this. However, I am still adjuncting and I don't want to be an adjunct with $400,000 in student debt. This is a hard choice: I cannot advance without a Ph.D. but I can't Ph.D. without funding.
Kevin is well and we are happy. We were able to buy a house last year and it is the perfect house for us. I have been working braille transcription jobs on the side. The jobs are waning this year, though. We can meet our needs; but I will not have an extra source of income after this year.
I have put my application in for dog number 6 after four years of doglessness. I am waiting, waiting, waiting for news on a training date.
If anyone would like to keep up with me on FB and isn't already doing so, look up Sarah Blake LaRose.
