My Counseling Challenging Adolescents class began and so far so good! It looks like it’ll be a good summer course. I talked before about my excitement for this class because I chose to take this course as an elective compared to having to take a course that is required. The professor so far has met my expectations of being a great teacher. His humor keeps me intrigued so I actually have a desire to listen to what he has to say; something that isn’t always the case in a required course with a not-so humorous professor. As many first classes, we took time to get to know one another. This is actually a post-master’s course so many of the students are already in the field which will hopefully provide great insight regarding their experiences. Although the first class went through regular routine of house keeping; bathrooms, vending machines, parking etc. and classroom expectations, one thing was very different: There is no syllabus.
