I’ve kinda been sitting on this, just in case something fell through, but I got conformation today so I feel comfortable in sharing.
UTSA hired me to teach four freshmen composition classes in the fall. The semester begins at the end of August, so by that time I should have a full-time job. Truthfully, I’m simultaneously excited and scared piss-less (no, I will not allow my students to use that term in their papers”¦they can get their own damn blog).
I just accessed the university web page to see my name at the top of four class listings. Pretty exhilarating stuff. I would appreciate it if all of you would light a candle for me in hopes that I don’t lose my cool with some earring perforated emo punk or a vacuous girly-girl. I would so hate to get fired my first semester for kicking someone in the throat.
If anyone’s interested I plan on using the Conan-method in conducting my classes. I was very impressed how well it worked for the librarians. I can’t wait for my first, “I’m sorry, sir”¦this paper’s a little overdue.”
