New Semester

This will be my 8th post (not including the about me post), so hopefully this means my free iPad mini, yay!! I am definitely looking forward to a bit of an easier semester this Spring. Last Fall was intense, teaching my first Psych 107 Lecture course. I basically created my lectures from scratch (using the […]

Not that I don’t find it important, after all, it is an exciting day to celebrate four years of education (or more or […]

I missed April, but figured it’s still the beginning of May, so I can get away with this topic.

I am Jewish so Spring break isn’t so much of a break, it’s more of just a break from classes, as I celebrate the holiday of Passover. It’s actually nice to have one week where […]
