In this new term, my dean again visited one of my classes, though this time, my class was AMAZING. They were scheduled to have a reading discussion, and they rocked it--talking to one another, remembering which of them was in the military, etc., when talking about flag burning . . . just an awesome day.
My dean was impressed, and I was SOOOO happy and proud and impressed. This class really set things right, over last term's fiasco. :) Sigh. A bit weight is lifted, just in time for me to flit off to Chicago for AWP and actually enjoy myself. :)
