Phipps, the GVSU Music chair, left an email in my GVSU email inbox late Saturday evening. In it he explained that he would only be able to offer me one of the two original classes this term. I accepted. Fuck it.
Received this just in time. I was preparing to go over to the Holland GVSU campus and make syllabi for both courses.
I immediately emailed the two students who have asked for closed class permits for this course. I informed them that I would be their teacher.
It’s frustrating because I strongly suspect the faculty person will not teach the theory class well at all. But I’m not the chair. My main concern is the students and the money. As long as I accept these teaching assignments, I will do my best.
