First Lecture

Gave my very first lecture today. Guess which of the following happened-
a. I got soap on my shirt before my lecture. This also happened before the first class
b. Got a little tongue-tied
c. My voice became froggy
d. I tripped over a length of cord
e. I made this image comparison:

f. Reminded students that I grade their exams and projects- it would behoove them to laugh at my jokes
g. Totally fell in love with teaching. Until someone falls asleep that is!

If you answered all of the above, you are correct. And creative, because it wasn't even a choice! I think I like my new job. I mean, I'll be better when I can talk about the Greeks and Romans. There isn't a whole lot to say about Paleo- and Neolithic art. Not enough to fill up an hour and fifteen minutes, anyhow. Oh man, gob help the students when I get to Rome, though!

Woo,hoo, I love your Britney Spears and ancient art comparison. A few years back my students would have said, "You are da bomb."
(Sadly, I don't know the current seventh grade lingo. But, that does not matter as you are not teaching seventh graders.)

Oh, but you should have put a Bettie Page photo in between. But I'm not aware of any "Holy fertility, Batman!" pin-up shots. But anyway.

Am I obsessed with but's today or something? Who wants to do a psychological work-up on me? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

I like that comparison. Maybe I should take your class? Maybe we can do a Freaky-Friday thing and teach each other's class for one day. THAT would be interesting!
