落落長…

推薦 0 收藏 0 轉貼0 訂閱站台

因為一個小小的博士花了七年的時間。感謝辭也就難免要落落長。 很多人也許沒被點到名,並不表示我不謝謝你們。 其實我也是想,「就謝天吧」。 ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This dissertation could not have been completed without the “restaurant family” that I interacted with for more than two years. They had reasons to be suspicious of me but they opened their lives to me and treated me with warm hearts. They not only served as my participants but became my other family in the U.S. I could go to their home for a hotpot party on Chinese New Year’s Eve and get fed when I was too tired to cook. I saw how hard Chinese immigrants worked in this new land for a better life and hope I can be as tough as they are. I am indebted to my doctoral committee for their never-ending advice and support both academically and personally in all these years. Dr. MK opened an amazing door for me to enter a qualitative wonderland where I had the chance to be enlightened by various discussions of different philosophical perspectives. Her warm hugs encouraged me and her positive attitude influenced my beliefs of being a qualitative researcher. Dr. LL took me to the world of children’s literature. Her passions and knowledge of children’s literature inspired my interest in teaching and learning multicultural children’s literature. Dr. ZF always believed in me and cheered me with his smiles. I would like to thank them for never lowering their standards for me being a non-native English speaker and at the same time giving me extra care and help. Great thanks go to my committee chair Dr. DF, who has become my advisor, my life-time mentor, and my parent in the US. I thank her for never closing her door to me and always being patient with my endless questions. She has been understanding and provided me with valuable advice to help me accomplish my goals in academia. She pushed me when I hesitated to move forward and motivated me when I lost my energy in fighting with challenges. She challenged my ideas, gave feedback, guided me to dig deeper, and assisted me to integrate theories with practices in my writing. She also included me into her family so I have this privilege to share love from her family members, X and B, as well. I am so grateful to have her as my mentor. This impossible mission could not be finished without the study group members that accompanied me through the entire journey: NS, JG, KK, TU, JS, XH, and JD. Because of this group, I have had the chance to practice being a social constructionist by interacting within the group and to make sense of meaning together. Especially thank to KK, NS and JG. Without K’s intensive editing and suggestions about structure in final stage of my writing, I would not have kept faith in finishing up. N and J have become my best friends, my cheerleaders and my peer mentors. They listened to my ideas, brainstormed with me, encouraged me even when they were geographically distanced from me. I could not have completed this journey alone without their endless backing as colleagues, as friends, and more like my siblings. My best friends in Taiwan, PHC, YCL, HCL, and ITM, kept sending their support to me across the Pacific Ocean with their faith in me. They supported me throughout my journey of getting my writing down. Thanks also go to JC, the only Taiwanese peer who came to University and finished her degree with me almost at the same time. Although in different academic fields, we accompanied each other at the last and the most difficult stage of completing the Ph.D. degree when all other comrades had completed theirs and left us. We shared the frustrations and cheered each other up to achieve our final goals. MYH deserves my gratitude for keeping awake to make sure I could go home safely after midnight from school during my crazy writing stage. I owe my greatest thanks to my family. I appreciate their ever-lasting encouragement, their mental and financial support. My parents, even though they wanted me to finish my degree fast, did not dare to put any pressure on me. They struggled with missing and worrying about me from half a world away but always kept their faith in me and never stopped upholding me in pursuing my dream. My brother has served as my personal advisor in helping me clarify all the difficulties in pursuing a Ph.D. degree. His family, my two nieces and my sister-in-law, also served as my mental back-ups. My cousin Y, whom I see as my real sister, opened her ears for me all the time when I needed someone to talk to, gave me a shoulder to cry on when I misplaced my faith or got depressed, and she never turned her back to me. I would also dedicate this dissertation in memory of my aunt, HJ Hsieh (1945-2008), who could not wait to see me complete the degree. I will follow her steps to be a good teacher. I also hope I will not disappoint her expectation for me to be able to honor our family as a female member. Without all the support from these whom I love, without the faith from those who love me, I could not have completed this long journey and would not be a strong person as I am today. For the love, faith and belief, I am grateful. 註一: 原文當然使用全名。 註二: 關於過程,還在消化中。會盡快分享我的心得,敬請期待。 註三: 照片是經過處理的… the moment of congratulations

對,總算不用在鱷魚城苦讀啦...

所以真的就「苦」讀啦?!

小童老矣
恩,天天都在打包打包打包中度過,
雖然心中感觸萬千,
卻無法真正平心靜氣坐下來寫出心中話。
先在這裡謝謝各位鄉親父老。

請繼續拭目以待...

我還以為你開玩笑的哩
要跟我們一起混基本上要有修過學程才可以哦

不過我就讀的學校今年和東華合併了(8/1,嚴格說應該是被併了吧)
合併初期應該有些系所會有師資的需求
我覺得你可以試試哦
2008-08-03 17:20:10
版主回應
我沒有開玩笑啊。我是很認真考慮想回到第一線的。
不過教育學程啊...就卡死了。

看來短期之間,應該是先不用試工作囉~
不過我還是很希望有合作的機會低

看了好感動,
馬上請我一個努力明年要畢業的學姊來看,
他說, 每次寫到不行的時候,
就得看看自己和別人的感謝詞,
然後就有力了起來...

真的恭喜你,
什麼時候來費城幫你慶祝一下?
2008-08-13 23:12:07
版主回應
哇,我反而不太敢看別人的謝詞...
不過,寫不出別的東西,就寫謝辭囉,哈哈。

也許明年春假?

嘿嘿~
