I did not really -- I mean --
I am a bit shocked, to tell the truth.
Leverett, of course, was not re-hired to teach Defense next year.
That will be me, instead.
I am... going to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts class. That has not quite sunk in yet.
Next year is going to be absolutely mad.
(I have also been informed as to who is replacing Azoth as Potions Master, but really none of the professors are supposed to be announced before the opening feast. I am only mentioning that I will be teaching because, well, there was really no way I could keep from telling all of you. Besides, I am entirely sure you would all have found out somehow.
The point remains; next year is going to be completely mad.)
