I really like my Intermediate Accounting 2 classes this semester at USC Upstate. I have a section of 23 at the main campus in Spartanburg, and a section of 5 at the satellite campus in Greenville.
Throughout the semester students were aware that I was being forced to leave USC Upstate and I was out looking for a new job.
Today in Spartanburg I told them I had accepted an offer, and the students applauded me! It surprised me, and I didn’t know how to react. But I felt respected, appreciated and loved.
Other events in the class? Nicole brought a big bowl of lemon blossom treats to share with the class. Fabulous.
And, I returned graded mid-term tests. Twenty of the 28 earned a grade of A, and five earned a B. I then applauded the students for a job very well done. I am so proud of them. I have raised my grading standards, and these USC Upstate students have responded in a very impressive way.
