Freak out #5,963 RE: My Class

I just opened my school email account. I had seven emails, which is more than a bit unusual for that account since all the junk email usually goes to my hotmail account.

Six of the seven were from students. They all want a special exemption to be allowed into my class in the spring that is now full. Wow. I now has a full class and then some. OMG!

Now I have to decide how many sob stories I'm willing to let into the class. I'm leaning toward very few. Maybe I should do a poll on here and let y'all vote based on the reasons they give in their emails. I wonder if I could get in trouble for that?

Poll!! Poll!!!

I was a student and always got into the classes I wanted but I wanna see how a teacher decides.

I might post the poll. If I do, I will certainly lock it. I think as long as I keep names out of it, it should be ok, but why risk it?

On a random note involving your mood. Half my family can put spoons on their nose. My aunt and my mom would always do it on Thanksgiving :)

I love that spoon trick. So easy but so entertaining when bored. Kind of like straw tricks at a restaurant when waiting for food.

It's always nice to be popular! :)

Except possibly when you're faced with decisions!

The nosy person in me would also like a poll. Although the daughter-of-a-lecturer recognises that there might be issues with that.

Possibly the nosy personality is stronger...

I think if I flock it and keep out names and other identifying information, it should be OK. I'll post the poll this afternoon when I get back from volunteering at the elementary school.

That's so cool!

Nah, just let them in. Anyway, some of your other students will end up dropping the class.

I'm afraid to add them all in case enough people don't drop. I don't want to be significantly over the max in my very first semester. My class is going to be more writing intensive than some others might be so people probably will drop, but I don't want to risk it. I should find out if it is possible to wait list students so they are added or at least notified when someone does drop.

Personally, I think you should have some kind of Survivor/Pop Idol-style contest, where they get voted off one by one. But then I'm mean, lol.

That sounds like fun. I do multiple polls and each time you vote on who to kick out before the next poll?

Poll! I think we should get to vote students out! But then, I'm a mean, mean person.

OK. I'm going to bed now but when I get up, I will post a Saturday poll. Should I do one poll of vote for the two or three students you think I should let in or should I do a Survivor type with multiple rounds of voting out one person each time?
