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.
