My Best Teaching Is One-on-One


Of course, I team teach and do special lessons, etc.


But my best work in the classroom is after the lesson is over --
going one-on-one,
helping individual students with their assignments.


It's kind of like with computer programs, walking the client through hands-on.
The job isn't really done until the customer is using the program.

To the Girl on the Train

(One of those had-a-bad-day riffs, still not sure whether I should post it.)

You got legs.
Pretty legs.
And a skirt to show them off.

Well I can see you got legs.
It's not my business, how beautiful they are,
It's not something I wanted to know.

I got eyes.
Bad eyes.
They only see what's in front of them,
And that, none too well.

If I see your legs in that skirt you're wearing,
Is it my fault or yours?

I don't know.

Fashion, what you wreak in men!
What you wreak in women!

I was already distracted,
My thoughts gone far afield
To arcane mathematical hobbies,
And now I see your legs.

You got needs.
I can see your needs in the fashion you wear.

But I'm not one to see your legs
And I'm not one to know your needs.
Will you pardon me
If I turn my eyes away?

[Really hadn't wanted to channel ZZ Top today.]
