Hitting that point where I have so much to do that it feels like nothing is getting done. At least I didn’t shut down the government.

Back to school

11 Sep

Teaching this semester has gotten off to a slightly rocky but also slightly hilarious start. These sketchbook doodles come to you via my attempts to work through the horrors I am inflicting on young-ish minds.

Any resemblance to actual classroom events and students, living or dead, is entirely coincidental and in any case distorted by my own burning sense of mortification (i’m pretty sure it wasn’t really THAT bad).

Fun with teaching lesson 1: Students say they read the syllabus. Students did not read the syllabus.

Fun with teaching lesson 2: If you say penis once in class, you will not be able to stop saying penis in class. Everything else will fall apart.

Fun with teaching lesson 3: Your tech will always fail you.

Bonus broke teacher joke: “Teachers deserve a lot of credit. Of course, if we paid them more, they wouldn’t need it.”


p.s. As I start teaching this year and face my own frustrations around budget cuts and lack of resources and support (much less my own classroom foibles), I am thinking of Philadelphia public schools facing absurd cuts, and children all over going back this fall to gutted school systems. So many students show up to our college classrooms woefully unprepared, or never get a chance to be there at all. Education must be a priority. Get involved!

Sketching and tumbling.
