I have been obsessed with the college admissions scandal that has gripped the nation's attention for the past week. As a higher education professional, I have been incredibly disappointed by the actions of Mr. Singer and his conspirators. But as a parent, I am even more appalled. What I am really struggling to wrap my head around is: who were they doing this for?
Upon my return to work this week from my childrens’ school break, I was immediately greeted with "How was your break?" from everyone I encountered. To which I responded, "It was good, but I'm glad to be back." That doesn’t make me a bad mother.
I started this blog because being a working mom can be hard, but breaking down my job as a higher education fundraiser into elements and activities that might resonate with 90 first graders gave me the opportunity to reflect on why I love my job and why I choose to be a working mom.
