I want to teach literature and reading and writing to people that I at least have the possibility of engaging.
I want to hold actual conversations with colleagues about literature, and geeky stuff about literature without someone assuming I have a third head.
I would like to be part of the conversation.
I would like to be encouraged to go to conferences.
I would like to be recognized for presenting at the aforementioned conferences.
I would like to have a schedule where I don't feel as though I'm working 16 hours a day. If this isn't possible, I would like to love the work I'm doing.
I want to feel as a contributing part of a community.
