It's been a whirlwind past few weeks. I applied to teach a section of freshman composition, got accepted, and have been in new faculty orientation this week. Eric has been super helpful: taking the kids every morning while I'm in meetings and bringing Inga every few hours to nurse. I'm really excited to teach again. The position is just one course, so it should be doable as long as I cut back on other things.
Like blogging, for one. I simply cannot keep up my usual pace of posting daily. I've decided to post twice weekly (more often if time permits).
Classes start in two weeks. I'm browsing through piles of textbooks and working on my syllabus. I'm going to use Peggy Vincent's memoir Baby Catcher for the a segment of the class--I've used it before in freshman writing/rhetoric courses, with great success. I'll be teaching MWF at 8 am. The plan is to wake up at 7 am, nurse Inga, go to class, exercise at the college athletic facility, and return home by 10 am. I'll have some office hours on campus and some at home during naptime.
Can't wait to be Professor Freeze in a few weeks!
