Back to School

5 Jan

It is time to get back into the swing of things. The holidays are over. The days of going to bed late and getting up even later are a thing of the past. School is almost back in session.

Today, I am working on this semester’s schedule. When will tests be given? When will assignments be due? I like to give everything its proper space and not overwhelm the students all at once. Other teachers must use a similar formula for such things because students always complain that we schedule tests and papers at the same times. They are convinced that we work together to make their academic lives as difficult as possible.

Actually, I have never consulted another teacher about their schedule of events. I reckon that we happen to use the same scheduling techniques. Of course, we could have been brainwashed at some undisclosed location and hardwired to think like each other.

Today, I work on classes. Tomorrow, I work on classes. Wednesday, I have another matter to deal with. Thursday, I have faculty meetings. Friday, I have faculty meetings. That is how the week before classes begin usually goes.

So much time and so little to do. Wait, that is what Willy Wonka said.Willy Wonka

Actually, there is so little time and so much to do. That means I should be working on this schedule instead of blogging. That means that this post is coming to an unceremonious close.
