You should see the brutal comments we get on teaching evaluations, not to mention RMP. Seriously. Anonymity makes people brutal. A sigh in the classroom has a face attached to it. What's your major? What do you want to do with your life after college?

I invite them to leave so they don't disturb the rest of the students who are trying to learn.

Same. I can't recall any black female teachers either. I attended schools in the plains states, but still. Not one.

I shoot for 10 min early, to have plenty of time to set up tech and call support when needed :)

RT if you are an English/writing/language expert (think MAs and PhDs on these topics) and you personally are FINE with singular "they" being used as a pronoun. I'm so tired of ignorant grammar pedants spitting weak game. Hardly any actual scholars are against singular they.

If you have any "real world" experience in the public sector I would include that, briefly. Students are increasingly concerned with future jobs and schools with applied programs love people with applied experience.

We were dragged into the library to watch the coverage when Reagan was shot. The next major event I remember was Challenger. My small English class had gone to the library and we were able to grab one of the TV carts and watch (no cables or modems necessary!)

I should add academic tone to my blog post list.

Same. It's been a long time since a book made me think that much. (And that's saying something.)

You pulled back the veil, and what you revealed to people without those experiences is both compelling and difficult. In other words, you wrote a book that speaks some readers' experiences and encourages others to grow. That's rare.

THIS. As a white woman, the experiences you wrote about are both familiar and very far from my own. There are some passages I need to listen to again (audiobook) to try to understand, because of that conflict.
