I’m into the second week of teaching in a classroom at Penn State. By this week, it feels like we’re in the swing of things already. It’s a great feeling to know your schedule, your rhythms, and your weekly goals. There’s something so reassuring and normal about an academic calendar. In fact, when I asked one of my classes what they were most looking forward to this week, they talked about the order and routine of attending class, learning, studying, and writing.
I’m thankful for a good routine.
