HAIL AND FAREWELL
Just finished teaching my last creative writing class for this semester. The subject was the Art of the Profile. My eight students were smart, eager, and a joy to work with. The most gratifying moment for me was when one of them, a precocious freshman in a class of upperclassmen, volunteered that "what's cool about this class is that everyone's writing improved." That's true. Some were quite talented to begin with, but they all wound up well ahead of where they started from. I'll miss them all.
