Apparently I’m More Guarded than I Thought
I don’t use the classroom as a platform for my religious and political views, although those inform and inflect what and how I teach. Generally I am guarded, and I never answer direction questions about my religion or my political stance.
However, I usually figure students should be able to implicitly figure out where I stand.
But today students were asking and guessing—and they guessed that I was conservative. Wow.
