A bad sign?

I was supposed to go to a workshop today, but just received an e-mail saying that it wouldn’t take place. I’m a little concerned that “The Future of Learning” has been canceled due to low enrollment.

A little bit of ... information?

Every term, our Basic English students complete an information form (with the assistance of instructors, for the lower levels), so we can gather emergency information as well as demographic information. As I count and collate the responses, sometimes I find a little humor. The most recent examples:

  • One student wrote that he’s the chicken manager for a restaurant. I wouldn’t be surprised, however, if that is actually his title — I just think it would look odd on business cards.
  • And then there’s the student who claims to work for the Colmubus Intarnatoin Airpot.
  • One wrote that he works as a kook. I know a number of people who do that.
