This Is Why I Do What I Do
By the end of last semester I was feeling a little burned out. I had one class in particular that was driving me insane and making me feel like a failure at teaching. So, I have been more than a little thankful for a few teaching compliments that have been thrown my way lately. I have found out that at least a few of my students do appreciate all the effort I make to have even things like Chaucer and Shakespeare fresh and relevant for them. I've heard feedback about three different events that let me know that I have made a difference, at least for three of my students. I guess that will be enough to keep me going for 3 more months now!
