I was 2 minutes late for class. Everyone was sitting there. Quiet. Ugh. I had never been in this classroom before and fumbled to get my computer plugged in, get the projector working, figure out where the light switches were, etc. I felt stupid but did my best to act confident.
We did a few ice breaker games and that loosened up the crowd. I got through the introduction and the syllabus and the portfolio description right on time. No bored faces. A few questions afterwords.
