Put on those thinking caps!
It's official. As of the first week of Dec. this year I will be able to call myself a teacher! I know this frightens many of you out there that know me :) however I wont be teaching MATH - thank goodness, I'll be teaching art! I'm so excited, and am really looking forward to this great opportunity. I've always thought I had the teaching bug in me, given that my mom was a teacher for many years and my sister has taught...however it's not often the "head in the clouds" type have the chance to influence others!
Game on students - game on. The class I will be teaching is the Introduction to Glass! It will be held at Patricia Bereskin's studio (where she hosts many of her own classes, and has for many years) in Bettendorf, IA. I will be the guest teacher Dec. 2nd 9th, and 16th. 10-15 students will delve into the world of glass with me as their fearless leader...I'm still trying to think how I'm going to get over being shy at first but they're kids and they love art...so I'll probably fit in quite well!
I get to go see the studio tomorrow after the farmers market, and discuss my lesson plan with Patricia...looks like I have some homework to do tonight :)!
I have another class for adults in the works at the Eclectic Eye studio in Moline IL. and will have more info on that soon!
