Today was the last formal day of academic advising for the college. Luckily the college has been advising and registering students all summer for the fall semester so I didn’t have much business. I only dealt with two students, although I spent about an hour and a half with one student. I was assigned people whose last name began with C for our division.
Tomorrow I will teach my first classes at SCG. I have everything prepared and I am ready to go. It’s weird but I have been teaching for over four years now (in my graduate program and now at the college) and no longer have any nervous emotion before I teach. When I was in the 7th grade I wrote an essay that ‘won’ me a spot as a speaker in a program before my middle school. I blacked out in spots, stuttered and tanked in front of an assembly of 500 students. Now I stand before groups and teach for a living…..
