    1. Thank you.Madelyn and Tink! Some people found it difficult to figure out how to vote (remember, I was one of them), so I posted it again, with step-by-step instructions.

      1. It was a good idea – and a good post. It took me a moment as well – different way to vote. Most people will go away before voting — unless they are as stubborn as I can be. 🙂

        Your instructions are clear – and I’ve got my fingers crossed.

      2. Yeah, and my toes, and my eyes… All crossed. My math-and-engineering cousin asked how she was going to tabulate the votes. I am also wondering – it seems to be a tremendous undertaking, if done manually.

      3. She is VERY generous indeed to spend her time tabulating votes.

        When I first began OFI there was little automation to be had (and what was there was beyond my budget), and doing everything manually practically did me IN.

      4. For my dissertation, I had to process pre- and post- scores of almost 6,000 students. Had I not secured help of a couple of student assistants to access the existing data and enter it for me, I would probably still be working on it, 22 years later.

      5. My mind goes numb even thinking about it! I had enough trouble grading papers without some student assistant help.

      12. I teach college, you know, not “school” school, and I’ve taught nights for years, first when I was running my school during the day, and then when I had to take care of my father during the day. Now I teach 4 mornings a week, and I have a chance to enjoy dinners with my husband every night – life is beautiful!

      13. Sounds wonderful. I’ve never actually checked that out, since I don’t have any official “teaching” degrees and a few life struggles didn’t support my PhD goals — but maybe they’d be interested in some of my other credentials. hmmmm . . .

        Of course, they’d have to agree with letting me teach at night since I live alone and don’t wake reliably to sound.

      14. First of all, you don’t need a teaching degree to teach college, as long as you have a graduate degree in your field, which you do. Secondly, community colleges LOVE adjuncts who teach at night, and most of them do not require a doctoral degree, so your Masters should suffice. I started teaching college 28 years ago with an MA, and did an Ed D while teaching at the same university. Some of my professors were my colleagues – it was hilarious. If you like teaching, go for it!

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your
    site. It appears as if some of the text in your content are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to
    them too? This could be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Appreciate it
