Yo Teach!

Was that a show?  One of you old people like Aretha, Rashan, Liz & 1969.. K. Rock.  One of you give me the answer!  Lololol.  I kid, I kid!  Only about everyone but Rashan being old.  Is that a show?  I know I could look it up but I prefer for my internets to do all my work of that nature.  Hop to it!

My first day was great.  I got some stunned and/or shocked looks when I went through my policies on attendance (mandatory, with final grade penalties after the 2nd unexcused absence) and the weekly current events quiz.  I was very excited to be there.  I gave a news survey and learned some of them are consuming very little news.  That's alright.  That weekly current events quiz will fix that right on up.  You're welcome.  I am preparing them to be able to immediately contribute to a newsroom and excited to be able to see evidence of their learning already!  (More on that in the next paragraph.)  The picture to your left is what I wore on my first day teaching!  Definitely inspired by some of the fashion blogs I've been reading recently which excited me!  I will probably be posting outfits on The Record Dish since it's supposed to be food & fashion.  But really... I make no guarantees since I'm about 3 recipes behind on that blog and really don't feel like catching up.

Preparing for day 2 I felt really stressed because my classes (the ones where I'm a student) were underway and I was trying to be prepared for the the class I'm teaching.  I felt freaked out because I was wondering where I'd get the time to do it all.  Then I walked in with my current events quiz.  I handed them out and groans were heard around the room.  I said, "What? You don't want this?"  Lol.  Take it anyway.  They were not pleased when they saw what was on it.  Things like what is the milestone in Iraq we recently hit (the withdrawal of combat troops), the name of the hurricane in the Atlantic (Earl), the food under recall for E. coli (ground beef, not eggs... eggs are salmonella).  These were the main ones that showed a lack of attention to detail or the news in general.  There was a lot of grumbling but I used the sources I listed in my syllabus and I am sure they will be much more prepared next week!  Here's what I wore day two.  This is another semi-fashion blog inspired outfit.  It was also inspired by my lovely sorority, SGRho.  Stace gave me that shirt a few years ago before I went to my first regional conference.  Awww!  Meeeeeemorieeeees!

And last but not least, my beloved Rashan sent me roses to congratulate me on the start of my collegiate teaching career.  It amuses me to no end that my students call me professor!  HILARITY!!
