I have loved teaching this class at UT. I feel like I’ve learned a lot, and that I’ve been able to guide my students to a deeper understanding of their students’ learning process. Both of these are good things.

But I’m also just exhausted. I’m ready to wake up and stay home. I’m ready to not have hours of reading and grading every night. (Yes, I read everything I assign to the class, the night before we’re due to talk about it. And I assign a lot of reading.)

I’m ready to be back here, focusing on you and your teenagers and supporting their path to healthy sexuality. That will start tomorrow, after I turn in final grades.

Hooray! Freedom!
