It's been suggested that I post to introduce myself--so here goes:
I was a periodic reader of RYS, and came by CM via the Chronicle article by William Pfefferle about RYS. I've been reading the CM blog, and occasionally commenting (under a different alias).
I've been teaching snowflakes for 15 years, nine of them as an adjunct at various institutions. I am now TT with a 4/4 load of mostly composition courses. Most of my students are first-generation, and most of them are willing to work, but I've also had some who are just begging for a boot to the head. I have a few stories from this semester that I'll be sharing as soon as I've gotten the TT stuff done.
In the meantime, I wish you all a lovely New Year. You've made things more enjoyable for me as I've slogged through this never-ending semester, and I hope to be able to return the favor.

Indeed... welcome to the misery.ReplyDelete
Yeah, that irked me too. I'm hoping Chromy just missed that bit and so didn't know to caveat.ReplyDelete
Welcome B Chrome; don't mind our troll.ReplyDelete
Mind your TT's! Welcome PBC.ReplyDelete
