I’m always a bit shocked when I hear people talking about their academic growth. There have been times when I’ll be sitting in the library and hear somebody ask what a citation is. Last week I had to wait for somebody to check out a book and go through the entire library registration thing because they hadn’t checked anything out yet this year (and it’s April). Occasionally I’ll open up somebody else’s document on the tempspace and read absolutely dreadful writing. For goodness sake, we’re in college! And it’s not just freshmen either. But you don’t grow without teaching and you can’t learn without mistakes. It’s not like I’m perfect either, but you already know that.
