Getting schooled

I’m teaching at Harvard’s Summer School. It’s rekindled my respect for my own professors in college, who graded my papers themselves. I’m sure they were faster than I am, but it takes me 30 minutes to go through and comment on even short assignments. I find myself barely able to get through grading the assignments I’m giving. I remember receiving detailed comments week in and week out from full professors at the University of Chicago, who had full research agendas and graduate level courses and so on. They were even more amazing than I knew.
