First day of teaching

Well, my first day of teaching is over. Considering that I haven’t taught anything in nearly a year and a half, I didn’t do too badly. I went much faster than I should have, but the first chapter was mostly fluff anyway. I’ll slow it down for Thursday. Maybe I’ll have fewer students Thursday, the room was a bit crowded today.

Speaking of teaching, check out ratemyprofessors.com. Pretty interesting what students will say. Doug Burgess at ETSU was great when I was an undergrad and apparently still is. He’s the primary reason I was a history major, and one reason why I got a masters and am working on a Ph.D. He even has a cookbook.

There was only one professor from SIS that was rated. Hopefully if my students rate me here I’ll do better than that.
