Yesterday my amazing wife waltzed straight into the English department at Akron University, slapped down a resume, went through a brief interview that included grading a hypothetical student paper, and walked away with a job. Alex is now an adjunct faculty member who will conduct 3 freshman composition classes this fall. One half hour with the department chair was all it took. This is a great beginning to what doubtlessly will be a long and productive career in academia.
And who knows what will follow. Publications? Tenure track? A full professorship? An Ohio state driver's licence? Only time will tell.
McBone Inc, on behalf of the NOML the NIML and the entire McBone community, extends a hearty congratulations to Alexandra Hidalgo, Adjunct Professor of English at the University of Akron.
