Hi, I usually try to find the pearl in every situation. There will always be something to discover or learn. There are a lot of great suggestions here to try. I tend to stuff things also, and learning to speak up more is one of my goals.

Blessings! Dee

I did get some advice from a colleague... he suggested that I find a way to bring literature into the boring courses that I find so tedious --- maybe a short story here and there or a poem that illustrates some concept I am teaching. That was a good idea, so I'm thinking about ways to do it.

You asked how others deal with disappointment: I confront the situation and try to talk it out and find a less disappointing path. Or I eat too much. I am not very evolved, lol.

How you anything is how you do everything...but don't let perfect be the enemy of good.

I think it is good that you wrote this down. As you mentioned, if you stuff your feelings with food or other things you can become even more upset or depressed. If you are unable to teach this, even in the non credit, I would hope that the dean will allow you to this in the next year. Has he mentioned whether this is just temporary? Perhaps you may want to look at teaching in another school in the future. I am sure this is such a disappointment for you.

That's a good idea; I'll ask him if I can have the course in the summer or fall semester. Unfortunately, I can't fit in any noncredit courses because I am overloaded with seven classes as it is. However, I am teaching a new humanities course on technology in America... so that will be different and fun.

Can you talk to your Dean and ask for this class next semester since you so graciously gave it up now?
What about teaching those noncredit lit courses?

This morning I received disappointing news from my dean at school; I have to give up my only literature class to someone because she has too many preps and has never taught an IDS class (whereas I have, too many times). The whole reason I became a teacher was to teach literature, and I hardly ever get to teach it. Instead, I have to teach basic writing classes, and I get very tired of it. I just wanted to write this down instead of stuffing my disappointed feelings with too much food today. That won't help. I'm going to work on finding a way to lift my mood. How do you deal with disappointment?
