School and Crafts Starting Up

Blogged under My College Craft Club,Yada, Yada, Yada by Tammy on Tuesday 23 August 2011 at 9:11 am

School starts today! As usual, fall semester always seems to be packed full of activities. I already have my calendar marked up like crazy, and then just yesterday, someone asked me about teaching a jewelry class to some women’s organization that is associated with the college. Then I get an email today asking about when I can meet to discuss another school project I’m working on, yikes! To top it off, I’m teaching 6 classes: 2 traditional ENC1101s, a blended 1101, and 3 web classes: 1101, 1102, and 2210. Normally, I’m way ahead on being ready, but for some reason this semester I’m just not. One class got canceled, and that kind of threw me off some because I had to pick up a different one to replace it (though, of course, I would have been thrilled to just teach 5!), but I think it’s just I’m kind of overwhelmed with everything that is now thrown onto my plate.

The new semester also means the college craft club is getting active again, so while that is more work for me to do, it is at least pretty fun. I created a Facebook page for us and have tried to keep in contact with current members through this during the summer. We have club rush next week too, which means we might have a new influx of members. I’m also getting help from another faculty member this year, yeah! Needless to say, we have big plans.

It should be a crazy semester!

    Wow, sounds like you have a busy semester ahead! I think its awesome that you started the college craft club for charity–it inspires me to want to do something like that too. Best wishes for the start of a hectic semester!

    Uh-oh! Your schedule is going to get crazy busy that’s for sure! Six classes plus all the other things you do! Good luck with the beginning of the school year!

    Tammy, you’re amazing!

    My college years are long past. What is ENC1101?

    Have a great school year. I’m so glad you have someone to help you with the craft club this year. The Facebook page is great!
