- I give my email address to students on the first day of class.
- My email address is on my syllabus.

- I announce my email address in class at least once a week.
"Because today's my last day at this school," he said, "and I want to be able to contact you if I ever have any questions." Another one bites the dust. Turns out he's moving to Los Angeles, the lucky dog. He's following his girlfriend, who happens to be pregnant.
I guess it seems he's trying to do the right thing, trying to be responsible. But, still, I wanted to ask him if he's seen the movie Juno. Instead, I told him I'd miss him.
"I'm going to miss you, too," he said. "And your class. Plus, I was looking forward to seeing that movie."
"Well, rent the movie on your own, if you can find it," I said. "And have a good time in California. Maybe some day I'll see you there."
