I went to put in grades for UCSC just now. The grading is so much easier and quicker than the written evaluations I have to do, and grades are due sooner, so I thought I’d get them completed before I move on to Nutcrackers.

Sigh.

Not as easy as I thought it would be. One of my hour students isn’t on the roster. Ack! (So, RKH, if you read my blog, please do pursue this … if both of us pester people it might get figured out sooner!)

At the beginning of the quarter I couldn’t check my rosters online for some unknown (and new, as this had never happened in the past 6 years) reason. But I did see that all my students had registered for lessons by looking at their class lists that they showed me before I was allowed to teach them. Unfortunately that doesn’t show the instructor, but only that they are enrolled in lessons. So now I haven’t a clue how to resolve this. I’ll assume, though, that the music office folks will somehow figure this out. They are smart that way.

I don’t know if the inability to access a fall roster was due to my being adjunct faculty or not. I’m trying not to take it personally.

But I’m not a happy camper right now.
