Check out this article in The Chronicle of Higher Education, and then scroll down for my response. I’m going_the_distance.
Oh – and you are going to LOVE Jane Eyre. It’s one of my absolute favorite stories. And all the movies are super too.
I guess it’s a classic for a reason! I started reading it this morning on the ferry ride across the bay, and I already like it. Young Jane seems feisty and determined – my kind of gal. Can’t wait to see where she brings us.
Colleen, thanks so much for inserting a link to your blog in the Chronicle article. As a former professor and dean, I’m very interested in your experiences, and I plan on reading most of your posts. Similarly, you might find some of the posts on my blog, “Getting the Words Right” (http://barnettwriter.wordpress.com), interesting, since many deal with issues facing higher education today. Feel free to comment on any of them.
Finally, my wife and I enjoy visiting the Maine coast, especially the Rockland-Camden-Lincolnville area. We’ve never taken the ferry to Vinalhaven, but now I suppose we’ll have to do it!
Thanks again for your comment.
Hi William, thanks for clicking over from the CHE article, and for your kind comment. I’m glad to know of your blog, since I’ve been trying to find other education/nontrad- related blogs and have only found a few. I’ve taken a peek at your excellent blog, and have bookmarked it so I read back through. It’s funny that you have been to my neck of the woods before. Coincidentally, I grew up in Connecticut, and moved to Maine in 1988.
