Good news, everyone!

Something surprising has happened recently. Before last school year ended, I was offered the chance to go onto tenure track at the University of North Georgia. This is what I was hoping for, but it came along much sooner than I had expected. Even though the position was offered, I still had to apply (while I was in Vancouver, Canada no less) and meet with the hiring committee. But the official offer letter has come and now I am an assistant professor. The teaching is about the same, but now I have to get involved in service opportunities, outside professional accomplishments, and other projects that would benefit the department or school. I'm already working on some right now, so I'll keep everyone updated if anything happens. But needless to say, this is quite exciting. The track lasts five years, with a review after three, so that's the road I'm on for a while.
