New Semester. . .

I like the start of the semester--but in some ways I dread it as well.  It's a fresh start, and a scary beginning.

I always deal with the "What if I can't teach them in a way they will understand?"  "What if they have poor attitudes?"  "What if they don't like me or my teaching style?"  "How can I convince them that this information is important and that I have spent hours preparing it?"

Ugh.

I know this is an inward battle--but I do want my students to know how hard I work for them, how much I care for them personally and academically, and that there is a method to the madness of college work.

I'm still learning how to do this with college students. . .


Sigh.
