The Maverick has been banished for the rest of the week and The Biter has been banished for good. In return I've received one "problem student" who I happen to have a good rapport with and shouldn't cause too many problems over the next 7 days. This leaves me with a fair amount of freedom to teach (in June!?) as much as I can. I look back on the last two years and it strikes me that even in the past few days (and in the next 7) I'm probably doing more teaching than I was able to do at any point last year. That's progress, and it feels damn good.
