Since 2002, I have had an office out at the Scarfe building at UBC. It was another place to house part of my book collection, a place for me to focus on some of my more cerebral undertakings and a place for many, many meetings with young adults as they embarked on their careers as teachers. I taught about 21 sections (I've lost exact count) of a math course out at UBC but have not taught it for the past two years as I have tried to focus on my dissertation. My office partner is leaving her post this year and we decided it would be best for me to move all my mathiness out of there, not knowing who might move in!
So I loaded about 20 various boxes and tubs of books and assorted math stuff into my car and drove off. I absolutely loved my teaching at UBC, and I may do it again in the future, but at this point in my life, that book is closed and I have moved on to other things.
I drove through one of my favourite Vancouver neighbourhoods on the way home and stopped at my favourite Dunbar bakery for some treats!
