The religious right...

Read Margaret Mitchell's (University of Chicago) insightful piece about how certain conservative christian websites use the Bible to justify their claims.

Today was the last day of classes!

Which is good, but also a little sad. You can never quite fit everything in, and you know it's the last time that this particular group will be together. It's been a very good semester, and a good year with these students. They've all worked hard and I hope they keep on speakin' German. Deutsch macht Spass!!

Living it up in the German classroom.

Becky and Jennifer taking it easy.

This is a picture of Becky, Tara and Alyce right after they gave their senior presentations. Great job!!!!

These are the students in my 9:15 German 102 class -- hard at work (und sehr flei├čig!)

Would they be smiling like this if German were hard???

And here is my 11:45, working until the very last possible moment....

First Post

This is a picture of me (red dress) with my Business German students in Mama Fu's. Very good food, by the way. See all of those smiling faces? THEY are why I do what I do.
