Exam 1

Well, in case y'all forgot, I'm teaching Intro Bio this Fall and I just ran the scantrons thru the machine earlier thus evening and was dissapointed with the scores overall. A couple did quite well, but the others...not so much.

This leaves me feeling rather frustrated. They all seem mostly engaged when it comes to lab, but lecture for two hours on a Saturday morning...they seem glazed over and catatonic. What to do???

Goal #1 attained!

I'm so excited! I have attained my first weight loss goal as of Monday! WOO HOO!

I have now lost 42lbs...and counting. I need to buy new pants and a lot of my shirts are a bit big on me as well (I've gone down at least a shirt size...may be approaching 2 sizes).

I haven't been this weight in probably 6 yrs. Even with having my full-time career, my new part time teaching gig, and the homeowners association I've managed to keep it going which is also an accomplishment for me.

Happy Labor Day weekend to everyone and safe travels if you are headed anywhere this weekend.

Day 1

Well, the first day of class wenT pretty well. I have concern about one student who has a pretty significant language barrier to overcome. Overall, a great start.

Intro Bio

In 70 minutes I'll be teaching again! It's been 5 yrs since I taught so I'm a little anxious about getting the first class out of the way.

No weekend getaways for me.

At least I'm getting credit for the 5 semesters I did teach with the college previously. The pay is better now as well! Woot!
