A professor's woes in Tel Aviv

Yael K. an American Jewish girl who made Aliyah to Israel a year ago, is a half time professior in communications who is being a bit taken advantage of in her academic load. Her specialty is social psyhology and she may be on the verge of getting another half-time assignment in her chosen discipline. Good for her.

In the meantime, she has posted a rant about the situation with her current assignment. It is interesting to hear about the acadmic life of professors in other countries. We have much in common. Yael is also feeding half the stray cats in Tel Aviv and recently tried to train her own to dash downstairs to the shelter in the event air raid sirens might sound off in Tel Aviv.

Click on the title of this post to visit her rant.

She is my professor (Dr.) and I'm very glad for her and for my self that she made Alyia. It is a privilege to have this opportunity to learn from a very professional person as well as a humane one.
