Teaching Whine

The thing I hate about teaching the most – more than dealing with the ever-changing bureaucratic nonsense, more than the students grubbing for every little point – is the way it destroys schedule flexibility.

When I’m teaching, I frequently have to turn the work stuff off and put on my professor hat, because things have to get done before the next class session.
