Many changes are incremental: one, two, three…
Some changes are more transformative: one, two, chrysalis, butterfly…
I’m hoping that the Evil League of Teachers is out of it’s plodding phase, and is moving into its chrysalis. Soon, we can be a beautiful butterfly, spreading doom even as we pollinate young minds. Which is to say, I’m making some changes to our site that will hopefully transform us into a powerhouse of EVIL! READY FOR WORLD DOMINATION!!! Just after I get my coffee.
Some things will never change, of course. Students occasionally learn their lessons the hard way after they discover that procrastination is not a winning strategy. And teachers learn from their students (hopefully) new winning strategies for their students. Which is to say that learning isn’t always easy, and requires a healthy dose of humility from time to time. Which sucks, because I’m not especially humble.
Which is why I’m here a the end of the week, and I’m feeling extra STABBY.
Partially because I’m being pushed out of my comfort zone (which is good), but also for more personal reasons.* But I will say, this is about growing. Busting out of caterpillar status, and moving on to be a scary evil butterfly! And now I’m going to lay this belabored butterfly metaphor to rest.
So you can continue to count on continued things like finals week playlists, midterm misanthropy, student and teacher horoscopes, as well as our going critical (critical thinking) segments. We can look forward to some new things like confessions from an ex-corporate whore, more teaching advice from a dominatrix, and maybe (let’s say it softly) a new blogger or two? The Evil League of Teachers marches on, with a new look, weapons-grade sarcasm, and extra stabbiness!
Now go forth, educate, and use your powers for whatever the hell you want to… they are your powers.
*Honestly, I don’t like it when the people I love get sick, and there is nothing I can do to help them feel better. It’s a kind of helpless feeling. Also, migraines suck.
