Professor Nerd if you're nasty!
Okay, so here you go, a photo of me on my ver first day. Do I look official? And, Heatheradair can you tell that a boy took the special shot of my shoes for you? Dorkus, you can't even see the fun cork wedges. And my feet are, in real life, really small for my height- why do they look ginormous here?
Anyway, I may have forgotten to share, but I came up with an idea for the last page of my syllabus. I asked the students to fill out some standard questions, and then had them sign a sort of contract. It states that they've reviewed the syllabus and are aware of their responsibilities, policies pertaining to them, etc. Steal my idea if you want, I don't mind!
One of the questions asked them their class status. Uh, there are 9 students in my first section, and most of them are sophomores (1 transfer, one freshman).
THEY ALL SPELLED SOPHOMORE WRONG. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
There were a few sophomores in the second section, and some of them spelled it right. But in a class of 9, there's nowhere to hide.
And we're off!! Let the academic silliness begin!
