It’s Halloween and I taught the class HIP 101 & Beyond. This is always a fun class to teach and today being Halloween it was even more fun. Myself and a few of the participants arrived in costumes. During the introductions I received applause when I announced that this was my first class in nearly a year. What a great way to kick things off! It feels good to be back and especially good to receive such a warm welcome from the staff.
