Back in the Classroom

Like that scene at the end of “Independence Day” when Randy Quaid flies into the alien mother ship to save the earth, I’m baaaack.

I found out yesterday that I have been nominated to an adjunct faculty teaching position at my alma mater, the University of Maryland University College.  Beginning next Spring semester, I’ll be back to teaching, most likely for a PR techniques class.  I’m returning to a wonderful place where I got my Master’s degree a long time ago – and began my teaching career as a TA even longer ago.

I am absolutely thrilled to be going to back to the classroom.  I missed it because of all of my wonderful Georgetown students whose own intellect and wit challenged me to be at my best each and every week.  I miss you all terribly but am lucky to keep in touch with so many of you.

Thank you Theresa and Julie for bringing me home!



P.S. –  This will be a part time gig, so SEC colleagues:  don’t start eying my office furniture just yet.
