That stinks about the reviews. There's a place for constructive feedback - but no class is ALL bad and I'm sure you did a wonderful job. Smiley

We have to review the professors and set-up of the program I'm in at the end of every class as well. Because it's an all online format, they want to make sure that the quality of class being taught is the same as if it were an in-person class, so the "what was good/what could use improvement" is so important. I always make sure to speak loudly about what was good though so that it doesn't go away!

Oh man, I haven't checked this thread in a while and I had no idea such constructive convos were going on! I'm super impressed with everyone's enthusiasm and smartiness (hmmm). I really love the teaching portion of my graduate work even though I'm not getting paid for it necessarily (only through research assistantship). I don't have that much control over my labs unfortunately though, they are all intro to biology and they have specific tasks to work out each week. Maybe I could get some advice to add a little flair to it.

As far as introductions though, I'm starting my 2nd year as a MS student at GVSU in MI. My emphasis is on Biology but more specifically stream ecology. My thesis project involves taking invertebrates, leaves, and algae samples from 6 streams on a seasonal basis to see where the main source of invertebrate body tissue assimilation is coming from over the course of a year (leaves or algae). I know thats confussing but theres an in depth description on my blog.

As far as ideas go, I really like the idea of relaxation type crafts. I found that exercising, napping, eating well, etc... really play a HUGE role in how much work I actually get done. Its nice to have a little "nap kit" at work including a small blanket, a pillow, and some nice tea. I have to admit I've already begun "stalking" though I don't know my partner, you guys have excellent taste!

A "nap kit" is such a great idea. I also think that any basic organizational strategy/advice/cool containers is a good idea too! I am still trying to figure out a good organizational system going for my lesson plans and paperwork and work to be returned to my kids. Oh yeah, they are all special ed/emotional disturbed AND have language difficulties. (I teach ESL)

But they are so awesome! And I am completely exhausted --this was the first week I've had with them.

I am also so happy that signups end on the day I get paid!

IDEA!

Someone in one of the other swaps I'm doing mentioned using mini-mitts in a swap to put in their teacher's room microwave. Not sure if mini-mitts (mini-oven mitts) would be useful to anyone here either at work, in the library, teacher's room, etc.

Thoughts?

Daniethanas, mini mitts are a good idea. I live on microwave lunch (and breakfast and sometimes dinner). The containers on those microwave meals get really hot. I have "bowl cozies" that I have crocheted so I can hold the bowls when they come out of the microwave.

So hopefully one of us knows how to sew then... I wish I did... I would love these at work...
