So, here’s a quick update:
I’ve been teaching for three weeks now. Or, rather, this is the third week of classes.
In talking with my friend, I should hopefully have a VPN within the next week or so, which means I should be able to update the blog with some frequency, and upload the backlog of blogs from PST.
I’m teaching sixteen hours this semester. I am teaching two sophomore English Writing classes: one from 8-10 a.m. on Friday, the other immediately following, from 10 a.m. until noon. I am teaching all of the senior English majors (ninety-six) for a class called Audio-Visual; that class meets on Thursdays from 2:30-4:30 p.m. I am teaching two junior Western Culture classes, which both meet from 4:30-6:30 p.m.; one meets on Monday, the other on Tuesday. The last class I teach is another Western Culture class; it meets on Mondays from 2:30-4:30 and Fridays from 4:30-6:30; this class is different because I am teaching it to post-graduate students.
It’s a very crazy, busy time right now, planning lessons and curricula and the like. I’m trying to get it all done; it’s ridiculous.
