Teaching

I found out last Friday that I'm going to be teaching CHum 230 (the class that I was originally going to be a TA for). There are three sections, and the instructor teaching two of the sections isn't teaching this fall, so I'm going to be teaching 25 little students InDesign. And by little students I mean they're all juniors and seniors and probably older and smarter than me. I'm intimidated/scared/nervous, but I'm also really excited to run my own little class. I get to write a syllabus (or at least revise/adapt the syllabus that my CHum 230 teacher used), grade assignments, hold office hours, and stand up for three hours a week and teach!

Also, can you believe that summer is over? Summer just kind of crept away from me. Two weeks ago I had to start moving/cleaning and I've been in the middle stages of moving ever since. I'm finally settling in my apt, and now I only have one week left of summer (and I'm working 35 hrs and trying to prepare for teaching). September is always so depressing!

Can I start calling you professor? Or Dr. Lowe (cause all professors are Dr.s in my mind.) You just got your PhD right?

Too bad I can't witness this firsthand; any chance you can broadcast via webcam? lol you're a teacher, i love it!

Holly,

I'm pretty sure I would die of embarrassment if you were to sit in on my class!

I think we should go to wsu vancouver , get certified and student teach at mt. view together. We could skip second period and meet at Village Vendor!

Wow that sounds like a perfect plan! It's been a long time since I've had a candy lipstick.

Kristin,
You can set up comment moderation by going to the dashboard and clicking "Settings". Then click "Comments" on the tabs that show up under the Settings heading. There's a few things there that can be changed, and "Comment Moderation" shows up about 3/4 of the way down.
