    Posted December 11, 2013 by Bob Ertischek

    All that remains is the final...and then the grading, and the calculation of final grades, and the entering of grades. And then a couple of weeks to brace myself for my intersession course. I’m a Fifty Minute Man, so I’m not that excited to be teaching a 4 hour and 20 minute class 4 days...
