How refreshing to read about the collaboration and efforts of those teaching in higher education. I recently listened to an administrator read the opening lines of a leadership book. It began: "Elementary educators love their students; secondary education teachers love their topic; and professors of higher education love themselves." OUCH! You offer an example of possibility in higher education where, in my opinion, students need us to love them.

Hi Marcy,
Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. I agree. Your many years as a professor in higher education have given you a vantage point that I respect very much. It is inspiring to know a higher education faculty member who is retiring soon without the slightest hint of burnout. I suspect that an attitude of love toward our students feeds us as well as them.


I accept this as a poem to your students! It's really quite cool!!! You are....let's see, what's appropriate?....THE BEST!!!!!!


We talk about you, too, in the same way. :)

Hi Renee,
So nice to hear from you (a former student). Thanks so much; you're very kind. I hope you are doing well and our paths cross again. :)

I have been a witness over the years of how much you really do love your students. I don't know how you do it, but you teach the same thing several times a day, yet you stay interested and excited to teach it. I have been to some of your classes, and you are fun, funny, interesting and compassionate. You are a great teacher, Kris. It really shows that you love your students, your topic and I respect that a lot.

Hi Mary,
You have known me for 28 years - 10 years before I started teaching at TVI/CNM. Your perspective means alot to me and so, I am particularly touched by your words. Thank you, Mary, for seeing me.


In retirement or before... I foresee you someday, talking about this stuff on Ted Talk TV! Can't wait!!!
How lucky we in the world will be!

Hi Cheryl,
That's very sweet, Cheryl - and a little prophetic. I was just thinking about applying to present my blog post, "I'm Codependent and Damn Proud of It!" at the next TEDX New Mexico. I don't know, Popejoy Hall would be pretty intimidating! :)


Please, please do, Kris.... Popejoy, - the Energy is sweet, it is comfortable, not so vast, very intimate, not a bad seat in the house... the sound is perfect. Phoebe Snow loved it if that helps....and you already know about me and "prophetics"...I had the vision at the beginning of this semester... trust me...the vision was a huge lecture hall at Smith-Brasher, so it is time, and a necessary step; you really are a phenomenal speaker, Kris!!! "Just Do It!"
