First week back–full-time for me this year–and although the mornings were really hectic, it’s been great being back. I’ve seen lots of energy and enthusiasm in the halls and classrooms. Days are busy for me, but I love being back in the classroom. I’ll try to update this blog a few times this semester — I have a couple of new projects and novels to present to students this year that I’ll describe in more detail as the term progresses.
