If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been, well hey, so have I. It’s been an extraordinarily busy time with no time for blogging. After several years of having the program director at Eastfield College begging me to come back and teach a class, I gave in and have been in the classroom this last week. The week before that was spent prepping – making slideshow presentations, creating group and individual exercises, writing pop quizzes and preparing handouts.
From being locked out of the classroom and having to give a quiz in the hall to dealing with students who don’t have books because the bookstore sent them all back, it’s been an adventure and I’m beginning to remember exactly why I quit teaching. The students themselves are great to work with – this is a good book – but the college bureaucracy is, if anything, even worse than when I was there before.
At least I will have much more appreciation for my "regular" job – staying home, writing – than did I before. The good news is that it’s a short class and will be over in another week.
Meanwhile, I’ll try to sneak in a few tech tips here over the weekend (although, since this is my birthday weekend, I can’t promise much). 🙂
