I have begun preparations for the Fall Semester. After having an entire year away from teaching, grading, meetings, friends, as well as the periodic unpleasantries of academic life, I am busy with final preparations for the arrival of students in August.
I miss interaction with students, and feel particularly sad that I did not get to spend senior year with many students who have taken numerous courses with me throughout their NWU career. Best wishes, graduates! Welcome first year students!
