Checking back in after our first week of classes.
I was so impressed that students who were confused, asked questions.
Students who were lost, asked for directions.
Students who were unhappy they couldn’t add a course, understood my rational (my Dean won’t let me).
Students who wanted a course but couldn’t register, crashed the first day to ask.
These are good signs for a great year to come.
If you just ended your first week or first few weeks . . .reflect on what went well and what didn’t. Take notes! Jot down your successes and your failures. Trust me, it all happens again next Spring!
