    Either you cannot find a job even if you are willing to turn cartwheels or you are turning cartwheels and they wanna ask why you did not add a backflip.
    We're getting ready for yearly evaluations at the college. Last year I nearly had to come up with a "plan" to remediate a supposed deficiency.

    I teach five classes a semester -- one of those semesters it was five freshman composition classes (over 20 students per class, each writing four major papers, one of which is a ten-page research paper. That's a lot of grading in fifteen weeks.) I advise two student organizations, do academic advising, keep fifteen office hours a week, serve on committees, and attend multiple meetings nearly every week.

    But I needed a "plan" because I wasn't working hard enough.

    Turns out it was because I had a couple of student evaluations -- out of over 250 students -- that claimed something that was factually untrue. After demonstrating that, I was off the hook.
