What? Me? Work?

Well, my taekwondo class went quite well this morning, considering we were sparring, not my best skill set to say the least. And at the end of class, the blue belt who teaches art at a local community college asked if I'd be interested in teaching a children's writing class at his school.

Yikes.

I'm just to think about it, and I'd need to submit a plan for approval and all that. Nothing would happen before fall if then.

But...this sounds an awful lot like regular work. You know what I mean. The kind of thing where you go somewhere at a regular time and...work.

This guy was telling me about how much he likes teaching winter session classes, every day for two hours for three weeks. I could feel myself getting lightheaded.

However, I thought it might be fun to sort of tinker around with class ideas here, so I'll be doing that a couple of times a week.

Do it!

I just had a similar opportunity -- the suggestion that I might sub-teach a composition class for the rest of the semester -- which then disappeared.

But I found myself quite interested in doing it and started building up lesson plans in the air.
I bet you would enjoy yourself.

What we ought to do is plan an entire college course in our free time. Then we'd have it already to go when an offer comes and wouldn't have to deal with the time issue at that point.
