Back to school

Back to school: three little words loved or dreaded by teachers and the taught.

It was pure joy being back in the classroom this week, after last week's New Student Orientation. This semester I teach two college classes in a row, for six consecutive hours (with only a short lunch break at noon), and I wasn't sure how my energy would ebb and flow. But all went well, and after a post-school nap of several hours, I awoke refreshed and ready for an unexpected visit with family friends from Calgary.
