I apologize for the disruption to the flow of the class that I may have caused when I had to ask a student to leave.
I get distracted by inattentive students which adversely affects my ability to teach. Most of the time inattentiveness is not an issue in my
classes; but this particular class has been somewhat challenging.
To the extent possible I try to to balance my interest in reducing distraction and the importance of not causing disruption to the flow of the class--by taking it up with
the student after the class. Today, this was not possible.
