BACK TO WORK

Monday, February 6th, 2017

Just finished our first class of 2017. Good to be back in the saddle.  Thanks to ace instructor John Murphy who hosted us in Springfield, VA.

As a rule, the evil princess and I take off from teaching from mid-December to first week in February.  It’s not a vacation – we use the time to get caught up on writing, podcasting, accounting, etc., and to squeak in a few shooting matches if we can.  More of a sabbatical than a vacation.

Always good to get back to teaching, though.  When I was a kid, I figured teaching must be one of the worst jobs imaginable: teaching the same thing over and over again to people who didn’t really want to learn it.

There’s teaching, though, and there’s teaching.  In the kind of adult ed I do (http://massadayoobgroup.com) nobody’s there to get a ticket punched: the students are there because they WANT to learn, and that makes all the difference.  It’s why I love doing what I do.

I know a lot of you reading this teach something to somebody sometimes.  Share here what you like about it…and what you don’t.
