teaching nightmare come to life

| No Comments

So, I'm sitting at home at 1:00 this afternoon, grading final projects, when my phone rings. It's one of my students, and he asks me where I am. At home, I tell him...the exam's not until 2:15pm.

No, he tells me, it's at 12:30pm. The whole class is waiting at the classroom.


Happily, I'm already showered and dressed. I toss on a coat, grab my computer, and fly out the door, arriving on campus 11 minutes later. They're now taking the exam, which, thankfully, usually only takes students 45min to an hours to finish.

This is the kind of thing I have bad dreams about. (Though as one of my colleagues pointed out, it could have been worse if course evaluations weren't already finished...)
