First Week of the Spring 2008 Semester Done
I have finished teaching my first week of classes for this semester. I was not nearly as anxious this semester as last. By now I had figured out that the frequently touted claim that only people who had been TAs in American universities could teach college students was a deliberate falsehood used to deny me a job in the US. So I did not feel as if I was lecturing under a sword of Damocles like I did the first week of last semester.
