Okay, so I geek out a bit too much on the blog. Sorry about that. Here’s just a fun little story about my Monday morning.
I get to work and find an email from a concerned student who disagrees with the reading assignment she was given for her English class. Apparently it depicts explicit lesbian encounters in it, and she felt uncomfortable reading, much less discussing the book given her “religious beliefs.”
Then I get an email from a student who wants to re-submit an assignment that she admitted to cheating on. A short time later, another student comes to my office and asks to borrow my textbook so she can do her assignment. By the way, it was due an hour previous.
Another email comes in, this time from a student who is protesting her PTC bill and the way she has been treated by Student Services. She’s placing blame entirely on the school, and while admittedly she was misinformed, she did not accept responsibility for what I have documented she said.
Then a student comes by when she “suddenly” saw a D on her transcript when last she checked it was a C. This would jeopardize her standing in the nursing program because she must have this class completed at this point.
Now it is lunch. Later is chemistry lab, when I meet the 4 or 5 students who cheated on their homework. I don’t like confrontation. I hope they accept responsibility for their actions.
Tonight I have community group at the same time as the last Imagine Party at the same time as a Celebration Event team meeting.
