Professional Bio Submission

Professional Bio Submission published on

This is the post for December 28, 2017.

Notes for Today

  • Let’s Go, Hokies! I plan to be distracted by the football game this evening. If you email or post in the Facebook Group during the game, I will probably respond after the game. Please don’t worry if you don’t receive an immediate response.
  • Like button on course website comments. I’ve added a plugin that places a Like button on each comment you make on this site. I think it’s a little small, and I would like to remove some of the extra space it has added to the comments. When I have time, I’ll try editing the plugin; so don’t worry if you notice the appearance changing. It will still work the same way.
  • Likes mean I read your post. If I like your comment here or your post in the Facebook Group, I have read what you wrote. I reply occasionally, but I try to let the class drive the conversation.
