My week, by the numbers

Number of hours

  • teaching classes: 11
  • observing colleagues' teaching: 2
  • attending meetings: 5 (presiding at two meetings, co-presiding at one)

Number of 
  • one-on-one conferences with Sports Lit students: 14
  • Sports Lit drafts read and provided with extensive written feedback: 14
  • freshman composition papers graded: 12
  • African-American Lit papers graded: 12
  • Concepts of Comedy drafts read and provided with extensive written feedback: 21
Arrived on campus between 7:00 and 7:30 a.m. every day; left at
  • Monday: 9:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday: 6:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday: 4:30 p.m.
  • Thursday: 5:30 p.m.
  • Friday: lucky if I'm out of here by 7:00 p.m.
College-related tasks I must complete this weekend:
  • pick up rental van for field trip (Saturday morning) 
  • make cookies for field trip
  • take students on field trip (four or five hours Sunday afternoon)
  • write three midterm exams
 Every time an administrator insists that faculty members aren't working hard enough, a little piece of me dies inside.

That's one exhausting week there! I hope the field trip is fun and good, at least.

The field trip ought to be great. Other than that, this week's schedule was not all that unusual. I have only three more hours of classes to observe before I'm done for the year, but aside from that and the field trip, these are all continuing commitments.
