Sharing Success

I'm thrilled to share some good news with all of my readers! Thanks in part to your help, in response to this post, I have successfully passed my capstone requirement! I now have a Master's Degree in Aeronautical Science! I thought I would share the e-mail my professor sent after I presented my work orally, not trying to brag, I'm just super proud of myself, the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) and all of my pilot buddies always willing to go the extra mile to help a sista out!

Hi April,

I just finished reading and scoring your ASCI 691 capstone.

To simply get to the bottom line, you received one of the highest scores I have given to an ASCI 691 student! In my 2 or 3 years of teaching this course (approx. 125 students in all), I believe you received the second or third highest score I have ever awarded! Your work is strong or very strong in all areas. You covered each and every Program Outcome very well!

I’ve attached your scoring rubrics and posted your final capstone score (975 points) and final course grade (A)on BlackBoard. Your final grade will not be entered into ERAU’s electronic grading system for another 1-2 weeks—that is, until everyone has finished. As of now only 1/4 of the class has finished.

Congratulations on a superb capstone! It is outstanding in essentially every way.

Alan

MCM - Certified Mom

This morning I woke up early, the baby monitor was chirping just a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. Chris graciously rolled out of bed and set out to re-insert Otto's paci. Meanwhile, I pressed my clothes, curled my hair and brewed some coffee - my standard pre-console routine. After a quick breakfast Zara peeped her head over the railing and I heard a gentle "mama" echo down the stairs. It was still dark, but this little one was ready for her daily breakfast of oatmeal and milk in preparation for a fun day at swim lessons and school. As she sat, eating her "oatsss" (as she calls them), I whirled around the kitchen prepping bottles, gathering outfits for school, and ensuring all the swim lesson supplies were set out. It's hard leaving Chris to take care of both kids in the morning (#momguilt) so I try my best to complete as many get-ahead tasks as possible, in hopes his morning goes smoothly. 
This morning schedule description may seem mundan…

MCM - On Call

It's definitely Monday. Otto spit up on my work clothes this morning, I forgot to brush my teeth and I sat down in my car forgetting to clean the layer of sand from the beach yesterday. Whoops. But, it's also MONDAY!!!!! Which means you get a special look behind the proverbial curtain of Mission Control in a series I'm dubbing "Mission Control Monday". We all need a little "boost" (pun intended) at the beginning of the week, so why not get it from the heart of Manned Spaceflight itself - NASA's Mission Control
This week I am highlighting the little known fact that sometimes, as an ADCO Specialist, I am scheduled to be "On Call". It just so happens I am "on-call" this week! Even though we don't have a sweet 1990's pager, the ADCO on-call is a Specialist with the cumbersome responsibility of having their cell phone strapped to them at all times. Yes, even during the night. Yes, even when you have a 3 month old. Yes, just…

Experience the Kennedy Space Center

Manned spaceflight is not a challenge forged from one molten idea - it's not a put-this-in get-that-out equation - it's not a sport for the isolationists. The notion that it was "one man's passion" or "one nation's resources" that got us to this engineering moment is simply false. And the idea that alienation could ever lead to exploration is impossible. There is likely no other industry or singular goal so intentional about teamwork - from employing teachers to technicians, soliciting standard to specialized natural resources, planning short term and long, investing in ideas and inspiration, training fresh-outs to experts, and communicating technically and politically. Tangibly, the manned spaceflight challenge crosses borders and age and gender, there are pieces of its presence spanning the entire globe, and beyond! 
One of those spots - notable for it's history as the last piece of Earth many astronauts touched before launch - is the Kennedy…
