Does anyone else feel as if their teaching has completely bottomed out? I just feel like I've descended into shite. I don't know what's happened. It didn't happen like this last year or the year before. But I feel as if things have taken a downturn in the second half of both classes. It was more pronounced in the upper-year course, I think, but definitely there in both. I've always had very high teaching evaluation scores, but I am quite nervous about the evals this year. I dread them, especially for the upper-year course, the members of which seem essentially to have been asleep for the last two weeks. Ugh. I am so happy next week is the last week of classes - I must regroup and find my good teaching self again over the holidays!
