I am a teacher

As many of you know, I recently decided to start teaching. I’ve never been big on talking in front of groups”it scared me. Earlier this year, I decided to just do everything that scares me (within reason). So I signed myself up to teach as a volunteer instructor through Boise Schools Community Education Program.

I flipped through their offerings and decided that a Flash class would be a great addition to what they currently offer. So I wrote up a proposal and sent it in. Next thing I knew, I was teaching! I just finished my last session of “Intro to Flash Animation”. This was such a great experience and my students were amazing. I’m sure they will all be the next stars in flash development. Even though it was unbelievable how much I was able to teach in three 2 hour sessions, the real surprise was how much I learned about myself by attempting to teach. It’s one thing to really understand how something works… a whole new world to be able to show someone else. I’m hoping to teach more classes in the future. Stay tuned for updates!

goodnight,
