I am still mucking through the bureaucracy of it, but… I have signed enough papers now that I feel good about finally OFFICIALLY announcing my new job! Mr. Peabody has reinvented himself as an English Instructor at Laney College. I will be…no, wait, I ALREADY AM four weeks into the semester, teaching an English 269 Foundations in Reading and Writing class (though I just signed paperwork yesterday to actually get paid). My students are high school students at a community college as part of the Gateway to College program. They are at-risk, as we say (especially now that I’m their teacher…that’s a joke, people, relax), and this program provides them with the chance to graduate high school AND get college credits, which is pretty cool. I am considered teaching 75% time.
I have traded in Charlotte’s Web for Their Eyes Were Watching God!
More, perhaps, later.
