I'm loving what I do so far this term.
On Thursday mornings I teach a group of graduate students, who are not only intelligent but highly motivated to learn as well. Interacting with them in class has been pretty rewarding. I thought I would only feel this way when teaching literature.
From this Saturday my fiction class starts again. This term I will try to work on how to help my students enjoy reading fiction. The previous two terms I put too much focus on developing students' reading skills and ended up pushing them way too much.
It's just that sometimes teaching is really a stressful job, and I've been having to look for an outlet...
