I just got back from teaching MGT 414 in Pittsbugh, PA. I taught on short notice, didn't book my plane,. etc., until 2 days before my flight.
I had never been to Pittsbugh before, so it was nice to check out the city. Steeler mania is certainly in full swing. I was also lectured on the wisdom of the Jason Bay trade from a cabbie (who took offense when I mentioned I 'missed' Manny). Both have been clutch in the postseason thus far, so I can't argue.
The nice thing about the Community SANS courses is the smaller classes allow a lot of networking between students.
I had a great time with the students; one student happened to live across the street from the hotel, and threw a dinner party for the class on Friday night. I can honestly say that a home-cooked meal is worth its weight in gold while on the road. Thanks, Nicole!
