My first college English class got off to a crazy start. The teacher was very attentive the first week or two, and then he kind of disappeared. We ended up having to struggle to get a new teacher so that we could earn the credits for the course.
It turns out that the original instructor's wife has been very sick, and I feel bad knowing that he was having to worry about our class while taking care of his wife. Hopefully, despite losing out on the income from teaching his classes, having a new instructor will lift some of the stress off of his back so that he can concentrate more on caring for his wife.
