GMP recently posted her twelve months meme, and with less than a week left, I figured I’d follow suit.
January - I resolve not to make any resolutions
I’ve never been one to make New Year’s resolutions.
February – The presumed snobbery of gifted education
I was having a conversation with my older boy the other day (it does still happen…despite the fact that he’s a teenager, I haven’t become dumb as bricks yet), and we were talking about people we know who are what I’d call “gifted education snobs”.
If there is one thing I learned in my junior level electromagnetics class that will always stick with me, it’s this:
The permittivity of free space (ε0) is 8.854 * 10 -12 F/m.
April – I’m an author!
My morning started off on an awesome note.
As many of you know, the older boy is on a partial homeschooling arrangement.
June – Academic year wrap up
The boys have both finished up school, but they are both doing some academic work outside of school.
July – Educational elitism
I came across yet another article rehashing the topic of too many kids going to college.
August – Words of warning
Over the years, I’ve heard two phrases that really scare me.
As many of you know, I’m teaching a class this semester on academic skills for freshman engineering students.
October – Lack of impact
Things have started humming along now that I have my computer back, and I realized there were a couple posts I’d been meaning to reply to but haven’t had the opportunity.
November – The dangers of waiting at the bus stop
I’m not sure how much I’ve talked about it, but after a couple years teaching introductory geology labs, I was rather frustrated.
December – Working through the pain
Late last week, I got a flu shot.
