My Phoney Promotion

I am a big wig--and I didn't even know it.

First of all, I'm teaching 36 credit hours this semester. Who knew? I recently checked my schedule on AIM and saw that I teach all the InBio thesis and dissertation classes.

I would like to point out that I wasn't assigned as the professor for these classes when I was the secretary, and I certainly shouldn't be now. If you happen to look me up for past semesters, you will notice that I was the instructor for InBio 691R--that is true. Technically I didn't teach-- all I did was arrange for guest speakers to come, took attendance, graded papers and arranged luncheons. But I did assign the final grades, so I really kind of was the "instructor."

I don't even work for Integrative Biology anymore, so I'm not sure where all this is coming from.

Second, I'm now the department chair for Special Collections. See?

It's funny. You would think with all these promotions and hard work that I'm doing I would at least get a pay raise. I haven't seen a penny.
