Intro survey

Name: Heather

Partner's Name: Scott

School or location: University of Alabama

What do you do for a living? Ph.D. student in Educational Psychology, and I'm an administrative assistant for an educational program on campus

What's your partner's area of study? Legal Writing

Is he/she tenure-track yet, or is a big, annoying move in the future? We will be moving in the next 3 or 4 years for sure, as his contract runs out and I'll be done (I hope) with my Ph.D. and will be taking a job elsewhere.

How long have you been together? almost 2 years. We're getting married in a little less than 5 months.

Do you have any children yet? Pets? No kids for now (I need to get that tenure track position) , but we do have two cats and a dog, Brubeck.

What do you like best about being with a professor? The opportunity to network w/ other people in academia and know that most of your partner's friends will be relatively intelligent and interesting people. I also like the fact that I am with somebody who values education and learning as much as I do, as being with somebody who doesn't support your ambitions can be really stressful.

What don't you like about being with a professor? When he's grading, he's not exactly fun to be around. Also our schedules are different because the law school schedule differs from the grad school's, so when I'm up to my ass in work, he's coasting.
