Monica’s Graduation!

Posted: May 8, 2012 in Life as it Happens...

On May 12, 2012, my dear wife Monica will be graduating Summa Cum Laude from West Chester University with a degree in Elementary Education.  This is the culmination of a journey that marked a new beginning for her 6 years ago.  She gracefully and courageously took on the challenge of going back to school while also actively caring for Amber and supporting the wild ride that my career path has taken us on since the turn of the century.  Night after night of classes at DCCC followed by hour-long commutes to WCU and now to student teaching.  She came home from experiences in 3 different schools always showing her deep love for the children she has encountered (even the ones that are…well…challenging).

Earlier this week, with graduation drawing near, I actually heard her say “this is not a big deal”.    I thought “NOT A BIG DEAL?!”  Please help me get that idea out of her head!  Please help me make this a big deal.

Send her a card or a letter of congratulations. Leave your mark on her Facebook Timeline.

Graduation is on Saturday at 11am.  We’re going out for dinner afterwards, but will be home later in the day.  You want to stop by (say some time between 4:30 and 8ish)?  Let me know!  We’re not throwing a party…but if you want to come by to hang out and visit for a while, just shoot an email to or hit my Facebook Inbox.

No need to send/bring a gift…I just want to make sure she knows how many people are proud and excited that she has accomplished what she set out to do.

Mailing address:  Monica Staniz, 115 Biddle Rd., Paoli, PA 19301.

Thanks, everyone!
