Friday Afternoon Confessional: Oh captain my captain
I confess that I have completed my first semester of teaching at Shimer College. Papers will be coming in today, then students have “writing week” to do some kind of special project integrating their courses for the semester, and the following week there will be “final conferences” where students will meet with all their profs at once — but classes are now over. I confess that it seemed to go well overall, and I’m looking forward to next semester.
I confess that I’m somewhat anxious about my evaluations, not because I think I have anything in particular to worry about, but merely because they’re evaluations and they exist.
I confess that next semester, I will have my mornings totally open for the most part. Given that I wake up very early due to The Girlfriend’s work schedule, this will represent a significant block of free time that may allow me to accomplish something meaningful alongside and in addition to teaching — for instance, language work or even the beginnings of a new research project. So we’ll have to see how that goes.
