This is it – last day of classes, final portfolios in progress. A little panic, a little relief, a sentiment shared with the students.
It has been a long semester. The regular classes have gone well, though the new classes have been a challenge. Returning to my normal courses in January will be a bring back a sense of normalcy.
For the students, everything is hopefully coming into clarity, the lessons of August and September should have been absorbed and sharpened into their daily visions. Some of what I’ve seen shows that, some thankfully have a bit of time left.
