Over the last three years, I have taught 118 classes. Some were to adults, some to children, and lots were to my sweet, spunky senior citizens.
I have taught at nursing homes, senior centers, the YMCA, craft stores, and even my dining room table.
I have met hundreds of new friends, and lost several of them to their eternal home.
I have learned a lot of things including: how to take a right hook, how not to panic when someone has a medical emergency, how to be patient, how to improvise, how communicate with someone in non-traditional ways, how to multi-task, and how to take criticism.
I have also learned that it is unbelievably cool to watch someone else learn how to create something. It even more exciting when they thought they couldn't do it.
All in all, I've really enjoyed my classes and look forward to the next 118.
