After years of lurking, I've signed on to be a correspondent.
Good Christ, has it really been years? Apparently so.
Rate Your Students got me through grad school, until it crashed flaming into the ground. RYS, that is, not grad school. (But we all have our fantasies.) Then College Misery rose from its ashes like some deranged phoenix fueled on boxed wine and broken dreams, and I followed dutifully along.
So here I am, now a tenure track professor at a SLAC you've never heard of, and the time has come to contribute to this community I've relied (often heavily) upon.
I honestly don't know what form that contribution will take, but if you're willing to read along - or at least politely scroll past - I'm willing to see what happens.
If nothing else, I can help the other three of you ruin this page as swiftly as possible.
