Have you ever heard this quote?
“Poor planning on your part, does not constitute an emergency on my part.”
If you email me at midnight, the night before your final is due, and I don’t happen to be ONLINE at midnight (hello?), I will most likely not get your email, meaning you won’t get your question answered, or you won’t get the help that you need.
I actually received a jump drive for my finals (you know who you are), and someone emailed me their compost journal (yeah, you know who you are too). Luckily for both students, it all worked out just fine. The emailed project was literally intercepted by a parent who just *happened* to be driving home at the right time. The student emailed his project to someone, who printed it out for him. The stars were aligned just so! It’s a good thing I was in a good mood today. Heh. As for the jump drive? I’m sure it will all work out, because this student has a stellar reputation for being an excellent student. He was smart enough to mp3 it, and voila! There it sits on my desk, waiting to be read. That was a good enough alternative. On another note, someone (yes, you) emailed me Sunday twice. Then, she went a posted a message on my blog, because you know how I blog…so I had to give her props for actually locating me in cyberspace. WTG.
I really want to take time reading everyone’s work. If you start your final the day before it’s due, you have no one to blame but yourself.
On a happy note, 3rd & 4th periods have all but 16 students with an A or a B. Well done.
