I'm also employed? Yes imagine that, I am paid to do something. The thought is quite riveting, well to me at least. Before I had my kids I got to dabble (1 semester & a couple classes) with instructing at the local university. Well I'm back. I return to work at a local community college in about 1.5 weeks and I'm terribly overwhelmed. Not in a bad way, so please no lectures. Overwhelmed with thoughts, ideas, syllabi content, and such.

After spending the afternoon reviewing educational laws and bylaws I started reflecting on more enjoyable areas of education. Below is a brief description of a few of my favorite instructors from college.
(please note I'm brave enough to post a picture w/ me 8 months preggo)
Please enjoy:

  • Dr. C = Chinese accent was incredibly difficult to interpret and read (no that's not a misprint). Favorite remark "You are my little lions, ready to roar, I shall teach you how."
  • Dr. D = Deaf and refused to use a hearing aid or interpreter. It was an incredibly interesting political science course. End grade = C
  • Dr. C (different one) = Last semester before retirement. Favorite remark, " All religions are cults, so pick one and prove it."
  • Dr. U = Sold me on communication as life. Favorite project: Select a topic that the majority of people in the room disagree with and now persuade them. Final project. Success = majority persuaded.
  • Dr. P = Continues to refer to me as Molly Shannon and shouts "superstar" whenever I'm in view.
What about you? who was your favorite professor, instruct, teacher? Stories Please!

I talk WAY too much about absolutely nothing, but it's my own way of getting to what actually matters. Too analytical but at times it comes in handy. Enjoy hearing peoples stories. Get bugged by stereo-type people. Bad speller. Secretly lazy. Quasi OCD. Carry a constant frustration for the marginalization within America. Sarcastic. Suffer from (UL) aka uncontrollable laughter...never know when it's going to hit.

On my night stand
