[Spartanburg, SC, Wednesday evening] My wife asked again, “Are you sure you have people coming to help load up?”
“Yes, I’m sure.” I had sent an e-mail asking my Intermediate Accounting students for help.
Five students answered my call for help.
The picture above tells it all. The pickup truck is loaded full. The trailer is open, ready to be filled. From left to right: Shealyn, Nicole, Ashlie’s son Sol, Ashlie, Lee, Profalbrecht, David.
Inside the apartment were pizza, soda (I call it pop), and a cake. With so many great helpers, the trailer was quickly filled. Then the students talked shop. Shop talk for students revolves around experiences in class and what professors are like.
To the fabulous five, thanks for taking over and getting me loaded up. I could never had done it without you.
To all of the students at USC Upstate who took my classes, thanks for making my time so enjoyably worthwhile.

One response to “An Evening With My Students”
I just read this for the first time and it made me sad! I hate to think of the upcoming semester and we can’t even stop by and say hello. I hope you are enjoying your new ventures and your students better be great to you or they will have these crazy southerners to deal with! Ha!
