Hello hello! Now that the fall semester is nearly upon us, it is time for me to return to blogging. Without going into detail, let me say that it has been a very long and very challenging summer, but I am excited about this school year and eager to get into the classroom.
By the way, for those of you who are unaware, I moved this summer from Seattle to Philadelphia – I will be teaching as assistant professor this year at Eastern University. I have already met a number of my colleagues and they are great folks! I am very thankful to have this opportunity.
Eastern has a spectacularly beautiful campus with lakes and bridges and quaint manor-like buildings. The few students I have met were warm and enthusiastic.
