Many apologies to my… what, 3? Readers. Who likely haven’t even noticed that I haven’t posted.
Life has been crazy lately. The end of the school year is a difficult and stressful time, what with all the tests, evening functions I MUST attend, grades I must do, and the like.
I did get my layoff rescinded, which means I am still employed, and most likely at the same school next year, though I won’t know that for sure until the end of May.
I’ve decided to step away from the Grad School mess for at least a year. I’m calling it “suspended,” but the likelihood is that I won’t go back; I don’t really see much value in it and I loathed it. It also made me a bad teacher; I kept shortchanging my teaching work to get grad work done. That’s not the mark of a good teacher.
I promise to start posting regularly again as soon as I can, probably within the next few weeks.
