my future = abilene?
Having a T.A. = Totally Awesome.
- Exam at 8:30am on Monday after Texas in Africa was out entirely too late enjoying a Kenyan band? Given and proctored by the T.A.
- 60 exams with one essay apiece? Magically graded, within 72 hours, even though the T.A. got sick and missed a day.
- Lecture on the Federalist papers, not exactly our favorite topic? The T.A. wanted to do it, so he did.
- Innumberable asinine questions from students who can't be bothered to come to class? Directed to someone other than me.
The best part is I only actually asked him to give the exam. I do not have any plans to abuse my T.A.'s friendliness and willingness to help, but, wow, this is great. Here's where I begin to rethink my plan to teach at liberal arts colleges forever.In other news, job postings are starting to come out. McMurry is hiring. Yippee.
