It was a wonderful Fall semester, as evidenced by the great connections and relationships between my students and me in all of my three classes. I love watching as strangers become friends and as “shy” people stand up and allow themselves to be seen and heard by their peers. By the last day of my Dynamics of Communication class, my student Anthony could name every student in our 26-member class. That made me so happy! While I still have a lot of work to do to finish all my grading and submit it on time, for today I am going to bask in the feeling of accomplishment and joy.
