Random thought de jour…

GTA’s should have undergrad teaching assistants this way paper grading isn’t such a torture. Isn’t it bad enough we have to deal with freshman, spring semester freshman who are so unmotivated and text message during lecture/discussion even though they are paying good money for the class. Okay enough with the negative thinking.

Spring break is almost here which means, writing and reading and relaxing. I should make a count down clock.



  1. I remember some of my students saying that I needed a TA. That would be nice, but GTA’s seem to go those professors with gigantic lecture classes. Well, then there are some who just do special projects for profs (think Claire doing errands for Olivier in Six Feet Under. I’ve been there, done that too. I’m glad I don’t do errands for egotistical profs any more.

    1. I’m lucky, I don’t have to run errands for professors. I instead teach two sections of “how to write a paper 101 and 102.” With all the reading and school work though I’ve been neglecting my students, I think. I think getting ahead during spring break will help. Plus, I’ll get to work on some of MY writing.

      Thanks for the comment!
