It’s good to be a college professor. I can’t complain at all.
It has been an interesting transition from elementary school to university. In some ways it feels like I am teaching bigger versions of my elementary students, but then I realize how much easier I have it. So far in the college setting I haven’t lost my temper, my voice or my mind. The students are largely respectful and are more apt to listen than not.
My campus is bustling with activity. Soccer clubs practicing endlessly, students walking in groups to class, taxis zooming through campus, Jason Mraz playing on the intercom system(seriously) that can be heard all over campus. It is full of life.
Most university students are extremely friendly, often saying hello, occasionally bowing. My students try hard in class and seem to be having fun being out of the academic hell that is high school.
So work is good, in case you were wondering. How can it not be when K-Pop and Jason Mraz are the soundtrack to your work life?
