School again . . .

I woke this morning on the edge of a dream: it was the first day of school and I was giving my class the usual “what we are going to do this semester and how we are going to do it” blurb. Most of the students were attentive but often one or two would start talking amongst themselves and I would have to say “excuse me” in order to quiet them.

It felt so real. With this being the first week of school and, for the first time in twenty years, I am not going back at all, it does indeed feel strange. Teaching is that much a part of my psyche.

I understand how you feel. Even though I've been teaching for only about ten years, I have really missed the students the past two years. ("Katrina leave")

But I'm back now--and it feels really good.

I'm also keeping up the part time (volunteer) job at the Newcomb College Center for Reasearch on Women.
