Lots of higher ed reading today and a few giggles

I've been working my way through New Kid in the Hallway's Teaching Carnival IV post. Lots of thought provoking readings, some of it down right everyone really fighting plagiarism all the time because there is that much of it going on? Others think this has been an inordinately rough semester? Wonder why it has been so? Oh and all the great teaching ideas to implement next semester.

One of the links from a post has me laughing - Severus Snape: One teacher's hero. First it's funny because in every other role, ok most every other role, I think Alan Rickman is a hottie, ok an over 50 hottie...but I'd be like Ron and the buggart picturing Snape as the scariest thing I could imagine.

I think this article appeals to me because on some level I know that what makes me a good teacher is the level of humanity and caring I bring to a classroom, though like most educators I wish my heart got broken a lot less. Snape's heart is unbreakable...or at least hermetically sealed. Well I don't really want that but well you know...I know you know...we all know.
