You can do it too!

After a long absence from this list, I now want to report on my
recent success in gaining tenure and acknowledge the help I've
received from my spouse and many mentors, most of them female, some
from this list. I've survived some extreme difficulties with shall
we say less than supportive male mentors, I've parented two children
now ages 3 and 7, made it through a horrible funding climate, and a
heavy teaching load. Now, in addition to granting me tenure, my
University nominated me for an Outstanding Faculty Achievement Award.
This post is not to look for kudos but to provide encouragement.
Although I certainly work hard, I'm not any more brilliant than any
of you, and I've had my share of bad luck. That means that you too
can balance work and family commitments in a satisfactory way and
maintain a viable academic career! Hang in there!
