To be honest, I have nothing today. I've been working on departmental paper work all week, writing letters of recommendation, preparing tests, grading papers, giving a talk, and going to meetings. It's odd that for such a busy week, I have almost nothing to report. Well, almost nothing:
1. Go and read Evan Nelson's post over at Teaching Thursday. He does a great job reminding us that teaching often begins before a student ever sets foot on campus. He's a recruitment specialist for The Graduate School here at the University of North Dakota and reminds us that success as a teacher is often dependent upon a good match between a student, a program, and a faculty member.
2. The second thing I'll offer is a photograph of the new table that I found orphaned in a hallway and that I squeezed into my office. It's pretty sweet and seems very happy there.
