the first official lecture


So Andrew has been a T.A. for ever now and teaches sections all the time. However, he recently gave his first lecture in front of a packed hall of almost 400 students. It was pretty exciting to see the return on my investment. He was awesome. This is a picture of him, his professor, and my brother (who works technical support at UCSB and came out to make sure everything went o.k.) in front of Andrew's power point projected on the big screen. I won't lie, it was pretty neat to see him up there, doing his thing. Students near me actually gasped as he rattled off long Arabic names with no trouble at all. Feel free to post encouraging remarks about Andrew being successful and getting a job one day so I can direct him to this post during the next "what am I doing with my life?!?!" end of the quarter breakdown. :)

Nice work, Andrew! You're on your way to a successful and happy future. I envy your students. If only I got to spend my days involved in intellectual discussions and impressing my colleagues with my amazing language skills. Instead, I try to hold adult conversations with my 19-month-old, while coaching him on difficult words like "juice" and "ball".

Congratulations Andrew!!! You are going to be an amazing professor some day! We're feeling the same end-of-term frustrations, but with economy, I'd rather be in school than working!!!
