This Professor Enrolled As an Undercover Student

[On my first day] I had an 8 a.m. class, but after dropping my daughter off at middle school, she realized that she’d forgotten her asthma inhaler and she needed it for gym. I had to run home and get it, which made me about 10 minutes late for class. As I was running across campus I thought, maybe I should just skip today’s class. I suddenly stopped and realized that this is exactly why my students skip class occasionally. I decided to attend class anyway and realized how embarrassing it is to walk into a class late (and notice how the doors are always located at the front of the class, so you can’t sneak in quietly).
