Blitz’d Thoughts: Registration
In this week’s Blitz’d Thoughts, we asked four of our bloggers to name his or her favorite professor through the years. (Sorry, science majors.) Feel free to leave your own faves in the comments.
Raphael Pope-Sussman: Dorian Warren. Brilliant and dedicated teacher. He’s a former community organizer and he rocks Uniqlo flat-end ties like no other. Sometimes refers to the president of the United States as “Barack.” Need I say more?
Thomas Rhiel: You haven’t truly experienced James Joyce until you’ve heard the brilliant Philip Kitcher, with a schoolboy’s enthusiasm, recite the bawdiest bits of Ulysses. It seems he’s not teaching the class in the fall, but if he ever does again, take it.
Emily Tamkin: Cathy Popkin. She taught my Chekhov course. Nobody draws on the blackboard, wildly gesticulates, or teaches students to just focus on living each moment as best they can. I think we’re all waiting for a professor to change our lives, and I am fortunate enough to sincerely say that she changed mine.
Neil FitzPatrick: Stephen Massimilla. Take Modern Poetry with the man and he’ll teach you how to read (and maybe love) poetry, which is sort of like teaching a man to fish, if fish contained fewer fatty acids and more verbs.
