Leaving School and The Last Lecture
This summer is my last quarter teaching at Baylor. In the Fall, I will take up the same position (Prof. of Law) at St. Thomas in Minnesota.
When I announced my departure from Baylor, my students gracefully invited me to give a "last lecture." The topic was of my choosing, and I chose to speak about my most humbling epiphanies as a teacher (I had many to choose from!). You can see the video here.
In the last lecture, I did use a bit of innovation. I am not good at good-byes, so I found a unique way to escape. If you don't want to see the whole video, you can read a shorter description here.
