Only mostly dead
So. I'm not, as has been rumored, dead.
What I am is buried in grading. Buried, smothered, consumed by grading. In addition to the usual byproducts of my own teaching, I'm also scoring essays for College Board.
Good news: I get paid for it, and I think the experience will help me give better advice to my kids.
Not as good news: It's very time consuming and very tiring.
Speaking of--off to bed.
Not dead. I'll be back.
