I write for myself, for the web, and for everyone who gets me. I've been on a fasting liquid diet, traveled to Europe, and raised 2 kids. And I'm directionally challenged - I get lost a lot.

Please Submit Your Research Paper to Turnitin.com

Lindenwood Students,

Please submit your research paper to turnitin.com as soon as possible. I must see your paper submitted before I can return the graded research paper to you. Yes! I'm holding them hostage!

Both assignments are now posted, so if you tried to submit them previously, I apologise for the delay.

No Class Tonight - Memorial Day

We will not meet tonight for the St. Charles Lindenwood Class. In the past I have had class on Memorial Day, but apparently the building is closed up tight. Please email me as soon as you see this notice. I will be calling to contact everyone to let them know. I apologise for the confusion.

This week's class is rescheduled for Wednesday night at my Westport Location in room 253. I will also try to arrange a classroom on Thursday at the St. Charles campus if not everyone is able to make the Wednesday class.

Have a good Memorial Day.

St. Charles Students: Grades for Spring Term 2009

I bid a fond farewell to my EN101 and EN102 students from the Spring. You should be able to see your grades online sometime Friday afternoon.

If you get your grade and it doesn't seem in line with what you were expecting, check to be sure you did not miss more than four classes. Missing four or more classes (this includes time from leaving early and arriving late that adds up to a class period) results in the drop of a letter grade. We went over this the first class, and it is clearly stated in your syllabus.

Now go read something before you forget how.

I will not accept papers after tomorrow.
