The semester is over!
I got to assistant teach two classes back to back: intermediate academic writing, and advanced academic writing. Two different lead teachers, two classes in the same sequence, two different sets of learners – it was a really rich, edifying experience.
I met my goal of sharing my energy and joy straight through finals, though I admit that one class as a whole seemed more receptive to it than the other. (And who knows what each individual was thinking? Certainly not me. So interesting!)
Next semester, my family has some plans that make it so that I can’t commit to assistant teaching. I’m going to miss being in the classroom. On the flip side, I’m interested to see how the next few months unfold, and I’m hopeful that I’ll be available whenever an assistant teacher needs a sub.
Signing off for the holidays! I’ll check back in in the new year about my blog plans.
