This is a difficult blog to write. When I taught at the Life on Wheels in Tucson, I received evaluations from each of the students in my four classes. They were not good. Even the students in my saving space and weight class, usually very popular, complained about the size of the room and the fact that I ran out of handouts. The classroom held 25, I had 55 students and only 50 handouts. I was told in a note from Gaylord Maxwell that I don't meet their high professional standards.
Therefore, I will not be teaching in Lewiston nor any other Life on Wheels locations. I do have some terrific memories, met some great RVing experts for the first time and enjoyed teaching again. For those who are not aware, I was a college professor (taught Developmental Reading, Developmental Writing, Developmental Grammar, English 101, English 102, Literature and Psychology, and Study Skills), and was nominated by the students (and won) as Part-Time Faculty of the Year. The plaque hangs on the wall in my bedroom across the doorway from my B.A.(Sociology/Psychology) and M.A. (Rhetoric/Composition) diplomas. Ah well. Colleges and universities aren't Life on Wheels.
To those of you who enrolled for Lewiston to take my classes, I apologize. You'll have some excellent instructors and classes tailored to your needs. Enjoy!
