*MEEP!*

So, I got an email the other day, out of the blue, from a small university I interviewed at a couple of years ago. They asked if I can teach a summer anthropology course...which starts NEXT WEEK.

HOLY CRAP.

Naturally, I can't say YES GOD PLEASE fast enough, but I'm also FREAKING OUT. They emailed me the (regular school year) syllabus but really, there's only so much that a one and a half page schedule/vague class description can tell you about what you're supposed to do for four hours, once a week. I'll be spending the next several days going through all my articles, books, computers - scrounging for articles (because I'd rather teach from material I am familiar with than with the other professor's list).

Thanks sweetie!! \o/

I know, right? They were laughing at themselves over the *extremely short notice* but I'm sure I'll pull it off. I just need to keep in mind that I only need to stay one week ahead of the students and not rush into a panic of "PREPARE THE WHOLE COURSE RIGHT NOW!" *giggle*

=O Congrats!

I hope that's a good kind of freaking out :P I'm sure you'll be able to pull off an amazing course, even with limited time to prepare.

Good luck and don't work the students, or yourself, to hard.

Thank you so much!!

It's a good kind of freaking out, but also a "Hoooooboy, I've never actually taught a college course before despite my training" kind of freak out. But I've already got a big fat stack of articles I'm ready to keep sorting through. It's a summer class, after all, so the workload should only really be one, maybe two readings a week (depending on length).

:D

*snerk*

*hugs and smooches you anyway* I'm pretty sure they already have a professor (one with a doctorate, even)...but I'll take an adjunct professorship any day! :D

This is what I'm saying! You can be an adjunct, and then you'll get tenure!
