Yesterday marked the end of spring break and the start of the second half of the semester. The good news is that yesterday was really productive. I collected essays from all of my classes, stored them on my flash drive, and began reading them immediately. I will have the first batch scored and returned by Wednesday afternoon, which is great because that is my largest section. I plan to have the second batch done and returned Friday afternoon. So it seems that spring break served me well; I am rejuvenated and focused and immediately felt productive at work. Last night, I even began working on my new media research project; I wrote about 1/4 of the project, and have a clear idea of what the other 3/4 will be comprised of. Welcome back.
