New Semester

The new semester starts tomorrow.   I teach a lot of freshman composition at community college, and very, very few people are excited to take English.  But most of them are there to pursue a dream and achieve a goal.  Most of those goals center around starting or retraining for a new career and a family-supporting income.  First, I like being part of their goals.  Second, I’m good at helping them see how communicating better will help them achieve their goals and dreams.   The new semester is a challenge for them, but one I can help with, and that feels  good.
