Teaching (I hope), Venting a little, Grading a lot. I take my job seriously, and I take my students seriously, but I don’t take Twitter seriously.

Remember. We all make over $200,000 annually, never work in summers, have students so eager to learn that they not only read the syllabus...they become indoctrinated We also are not worried about school shootings, our own & our students health, & can afford basic necessities

I need my passive aggressive self-important boss to STFU. But I can’t tell them that, so I’m telling you about it instead.

School year me: Must be clean and look professional. Summer me: I don’t know if I brushed my teeth today. How many days has it been since I’ve showered?

Student: “Thanks for answering my question! I was confused.” 🤔 Isn’t that generally why people ask questions?

Dear Student, When you address a professor you never met in an email by first name, at least make sure you spell that name correctly.

See all that stuff you still need to do? It’s not too late... You can run away... To a new life where things would be beautiful and perfect... Until you fell behind on stuff there, too, and needed to run away again... Which you’d clearly suck at... . Better just get back to work

Student email: “I’ve decided that due my very busy schedule and my desire to keep my GPA up, I’m dropping your class due to your high demands.” So....it’s not the fact we cover 16 weeks in 7? It’s MY expectations of student engagement that’s the problem?

Last week of summer class! What’s the over/under on making it through the week with zero panicked e-mails, tech issues, or ambiguous excuses?

Me: I’m sorry. This was due two weeks ago. I can no longer accept it for a grade. Student: But I have all these extenuating circumstances I didn’t tell you about two weeks ago, so I deserve an extension.

I declare independence from the toxic fallacy that pretends to treat students as customers.

The reason our class website makes it look like performance on the assignment was poor isn’t because you didn’t do good work. It’s because many of your classmates didn’t submit an assignment at all and got a zero.

A student just submitted their final assignment ten days early. I don’t know whether to be impressed or afraid...

Asking for (or even allowing) 5 letters of recommendation is totally unfair, especially for early career fellowships/grants/jobs. It privileges those with deep wells of social and cultural capital - those who have connections and feel entitled to ask.

Summer is usually wedding season. While my friends continue to get married one by one, I will remain married to that higher ed life.
