I started teaching my new section of Introduction to the New Testament at PCC this weekend. Almost half of the students who were registered didn’t show up. For some reason when the class is a delayed start class, the students forget when it starts. I sent an email on Monday to remind students, but I only have their school accounts. I’m not sure how often they check those. It’s evidently not their everyday account.

Still, I have more students this semester than I’ve had in a while. It’s a more enjoyable experience when you have a larger number of students with which to interact. We’ll just have to see how many are willing to put in the work to do well.
