Why, Hello, 2024!

So far, you have been a hoot, and we are only a month in!

Let’s start with the holidays. It’s been a few months since I posted an update.

First, having a son in college who comes home for a month is a whole new stage of parenting I was unprepared for.

Fall 2021 Student Snapshots

Has it really been more than three months since my last post? That’s insane for so many reasons!

Well for those that are curious, I am still alive. My days are jam-packed parenting a now 16 and 10-year-old. This summer, we remodeled the kitchen, which I wanted to post about, but it coincided with the start of the fall semester, so I’ve been preoccupied with getting ready for classes. 

And that’s why I’m here!

Before I get into everything though, check out my new office above. I’m on a new campus! It’s refreshing to have a workspace to call my own after, well, you know *waving hands vigorously* the last two years.

Anyway…

Spring 2021 Student Snapshot

As you guys may or may not know, I teach technology courses at a local community college. I started teaching very early in my career, soon after getting my master’s degree in 2000.

I don’t think I really realized back then how much easier it was teaching when you felt relatively close in age to your students. At that time, I was able to relate to the majority of people in my classes. We listened to the same music, watched the same TV shows, and enjoyed the same movies, for the most part.
