Back to School

In 2015, when I walked across the stage in the Convocation center on the main Ohio University campus in Athens, OH, and was hooded by my inimitable advisor, it occurred to me that I’d never be a student again. I’d be teaching, sure–heck, I was already a program director at that point–but I’d likely never get that feeling again of being on that side of the lectern, as it were.
