Actually written Thursday last, but it failed to post:

I am having fun teaching, despite being woefully underpaid and over burdened with one hundred students spread out over only three classes. This weekend may involve some fun with friends, but for the most part I am going to be reading student “essays” – from the French for “attempt”. I have some students who have submitted only single paragraphs for 3-5 page papers. The upside is that they are easy to grade.

A surprise side benefit from my teaching style is that I pace the entire time I teach. That’s twelve hours of power walking per week. Who knew that teaching could be such an exercise opportunity?
