From my kids accomplishments, to my heretical perspective of the world

I am now a member of the faculty at ASU (Arizona State University).

I’ve been helping my friend Les, who is a Professor of Biology, with some computer programming on some of his biology projects. He thought that as long as I was working for the university I might as well be on the faculty. He helped me apply, and we just heard that I was accepted.

An “Adjunct” faculty member isn’t really a big deal. Some adjuncts are professors and can teach classes, etc, but I will just be a lowly programmer/hike-assistant/helper. But I might get a little pay for my hours, and also have parking, library, bookstore and some other privileges.

And this doesn’t mean I will start cheering the Sun Devils!

Hey, I just realized that Derek is a student, and I am faculty. Hmmm. Wonder how I can take advantage of that…

    My first thought was tuition discount?? You will have to check into that!

    Daryl doesn’t need a tuition discount. He already knows everything there is to know so he doesn’t need any classes.

    Not for Daryl…for Derek!

    Isn’t it great! I have always had kids and grandkids to brag about, but now I can add “College Professor”. All right, so I may exaggerate a little.

    I’m sure you will, Mom! But it’s an honor nonetheless. WTG Daryl! Enjoy those benies.
