So far, it has been a whirlwind start to the Fall 2012 semester. I have been solo teaching an introductory course - Investigating Landscape Form, Process, and Detail - to 34 new landscape architecture students. It has been fun. In fact, it is more fun than I ever imagined, but it has been lots of work figuring out the intricacies of this new career. Going back to school five years ago was scary; writing a thesis was exhaustive; this teaching thing is a whole other level of work with hours of preparation, lecture, and then grading of assignments. Now that we are taking the studio "on the road," I have to figure out how to do it all from the back of a van!
However this new assignment turns out for me-and the rest of our studio-it will be an adventure I never could have dreamed up. I am so grateful to all those in my department who made this happen. I am one lucky duck.
