Souvenirs from Omaha

Having just returned from a six-day stint in Omaha, NE, I have to say that I learned a few things–not just about teaching AP Literature and Composition, but about myself.   This is truly the first time since 1992 that I have spent an extended period of time by myself and on my own; and I learned that reacquainting oneself with one’s self is a worthy enterprise.  So, despite Mother Nature’s light show that kept me in Chicago without a suitcase for over thirty hours and the tornado sirens of Wednesday evening, I would rate this trip a success.  I feel confident that I will be able to teach my students well; I learned that I am perfectly at ease dining with myself and walking with myself and being with myself; and, I learned that coming home with that knowledge to a loving family is a gift unparalleled.  Here the boys show off their megaphones–the gift every toddler needs–from the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Bookstore.  It’s good to be home!
