Office hours

Toward the beginning of each semester, I inevitably find myself feeling that the number of students attending office hours has hit a new low. This semester, I've additionally found myself wondering when the first brave student would actually come. Today, finally, someone did. Hooray! We spent forty minutes talking about pronouns and other assorted grammatical points. It was good. I wish more of my students would take advantage of office hours — it's for their benefit that I hold them, after all.
