Wow, Masters Students Rock
Some exciting news! My old boss at BYU, the Chair for the Linguistics Department, is out of town for 2 weeks. He'd been asked last minute to present at 2 conferences, one in Dubai, one in Nepal. I happened to pop my head in his office on Monday, and he was leaving Tuesday. On seeing me, he asked if I'd do him the huge favour (and he's Australian, so yes... he said it with a 'u') of teaching his Master's class while he was away. Umm... YES! So yesterday I went down to BYU and taught my 1st Master's class! And it was so much fun. Small class, only 6 students, and they were all engaged with the materials I'd emailed them, participating, making really excellent observations or asking insightful questions. Brilliant. I may be spoilt for life!
