A good team makes working on projects and assignments easier. A great team helps you keep calm when you have seven interviews in one week, two homework assignments due and a midterm within days. Luckily, I fall into the second category! I wanted to take a quick second and thank my incredible team members: Pat, Davin, Arjun and Tracy for everything this past month. Not only did February bring snow and cold (also some 60 degree days - thanks Ohio), but lots of interviews, projects and and team assignments.
After the first week of classes this quarter, I managed to catch a stomach virus. I was stuck at home, mostly confined to my bed and felt like I had been given a one-two punch to my head and gut. And to make me feel worse, I had to miss our first core team meeting as well as an entire day of classes. Luckily, I have the best team ever.
Ah, at last it's Thanksgiving week, Michigan week, and most joyfully the end of team presentations! I knew coming into the program that teamwork would be a large component of the class experience. This quarter I have enjoyed two teams, giving three presentations. Both teams, all women, were great to work with. One was more tentative, and well paced, while the other was more social, and well researched. Both were great partnerships and I came away feeling like we equally shared the burden of class presentations.
