Moving into Spring Semester

I haven't posted in a while, and apparently, people are missing it. OK - one person is missing it. My grandma doesn't complain that I don't call or email anymore. She complains that I don't update my blog more often.

Hi grandma!

There have been quite a few things that I've been thinking of writing about. The main reason that I haven't been writing has probably been because I've been preparing for my class. Most of my free time and brain space has been dedicated to getting this class set up.

The class begins tomorrow at noon. Gasp.

I've been trying to get a syllabus and class schedule together. Of course, that doesn't mean I have a clue what I'm going to say when I'm standing in front of them tomorrow. I keep thinking of things, but nothing has really been organized yet. I haven't found a lot of "formal" support. I've gotten lots of good advice from seasoned professors about how to teach my class. However, I still don't have the administrative status to see my class list. This sort of stuff is a little unsettling.

More and more students keep registering for this as well. At one time, I was happy to have around 12 students in the course. Now, those numbers have reversed and I see 21 students registered for my class. Who knows who else could be there when I show up tomorrow?

I think that I'm the type of person who needs to bumble through something in order to find out how to improve it. This first course may not be great, but it will give me an idea of what I need to do to improve it. I'm just hoping that the students don't suffer for my lack of preparedness. I mean, I have a plan. I just don't know if it's a GOOD plan.

Prayers would be appreciated tomorrow around noon. By then, I should have gotten myself off to a good start.
