I have been informed that I need to say something about how this site uses Cookies and possibly get the permission of my European readers about the use of Cookies.

Student Readers: A Warning

I welcome students readers to this blog. However, be aware that, although I do not use anyone's actual name, the descriptions of behaviors and conversations are not disguised. This is a space in which I may rant, vent, and otherwise express responses that I would do my best to mask or at least tone down in professional interactions with students. This is my personal, gloves off, no holds barred, direct from the gut expression of what it feels like to do my job. If you think you might be hurt or offended or upset by that, read no further. The person I'm ranting about could be you.


Hi! And you are...?

My readership has suddenly blossomed, which is a lovely development--but I don't know who is reading the blog, how you found it, and why you find it interesting. I'd love to hear from you! Please feel free to use the "comment" box at the end of any particular post to let me know what brought you to this page--and what keeps you coming back for more (if you do).

Not you, Barry. You already told me--and thanks!

First day of classes--not

I'm glad to have come in today, just to do a little more organizing, but as I see the snowfall increasing exponentially outside, I realize I shouldn't noodle around in the office any longer. Classes are canceled starting with my first period of the day, which is not a problem: the first week, I meet T/Th classes twice and M/W classes only once, so the Tuesday is usually a little bit of wheel spinning, so that by the second week, everything is in synch. I was worried that I wouldn't meet my M/W class until next week--but we've gotten notice that classes will resume right on time for me to meet those students. Whew.

There were many times over the break when I thought "I'd really like to post something about this," but, well, whenever I was done with the work of the day, I decided I'd rather enjoy the break. Maybe tomorrow I'll spend some time getting caught up on various thoughts and occurrences from the past weeks--or maybe not. In any event, I'm comfortable being back to the routine of classes and committees, even if we are starting off with a snow day.
