It’s over

Earlier this week I submitted the final grades for field entomology, and yesterday I got paid – hurray! Part of me is sad the experience is over, but I’m excited for the fall semester to start.

Being in charge of a class myself presented many challenges, but was incredibly rewarding. Their final exams included some really thoughtful answers, and their insect collections were, for the most part, quite impressive. I am grateful for the cooperation and enthusiasm of all the students in the class. I will be seeing a few of them next week when general entomology starts, I’m glad I didn’t scare them off!

Just look at all those troublemakers.

One week isn’t really enough time to decompress and then prepare for another semester of teaching… but I guess that’s what I have to do. I’m not taking any classes but will be going to a few seminars and meetings, working on a couple projects, TAing the general entomology lab, doing research, and studying for my general exam. It’s a good thing I like being busy.
