Three weeks into the semester, I am loving being at ACU again.
My freshman composition and Major British Writers I classes are going well. I have, I hope, readjusted my expectations for writing and homework to match ACU’s.
The new-faculty mentor I was given is Karen C, a wonderful, positive, effusive person who has made my day many times just walking down the hall. I keep her “Hi, Suanna! Glad you are here” note from before school began on the back of my door. It makes me smile every time I see it. AND it was written before she was my mentor. See? It’s a God thing.
TThe new-graduate mentee I was assigned is Amelia E. We have lots of things in common, including scholarship areas in science fiction and fantasy, being mothers, and working at ACU. I’m glad we are connected through the mentoring program and hope I will be an encouragement to her. She was very glad to know that someone works in science fiction.
