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.
