Here’s something I never thought I’d say: I’m going back to school!
But this time, it’s to teach!
Yup, nine years after graduating with my B.Ed, I’m heading back to the classroom to teach about really the only thing I know: Blogging! Starting this fall, I’ll teaching Basics of Blogging for Mount Royal University’s Continuing Education program! I’m only so excited, I don’t know if I can wait until November.
If you’re still stuck on the fact that I have a B.Ed, I got it from St. Thomas University and I never really did anything with it, mostly because I didn’t want to deal with helicopter parents, although those summer vacations would have been nice. No, my life took me in a different direction and I ended up starting a blog, which is what I’ll now be teaching about! Talk about everything happening for a reason.
If you want to sign up for the class, I’m still working on the curriculum, but generally, I’d like all my students (MY STUDENTS!!!) to have a good blog going by the end of the course. I’ll probably bring in some guest speakers and grade on a bell curve. I don’t know what that means, it’s just something I’ve always wanted to say. Actually, since it’s Cont. Ed, I’m pretty sure it’s all pass or fail, so it’ll definitely be fun!
Head on over to the Continuing Education website to sign up for the class or check out other classes. Mine starts in the fall and is under the Creative Writing umbrella.
But all this planning has me thinking about what kind of teacher I want to be. And I’ve decided I want to be a mix of three kinds of teachers:
Obviously he’s the ultimate teacher, but I want to try and capture his ability of being teacher and friend, without accepting bribes, that is.
No, not cause he slept with one of his student. But because he never seemed to be correcting any homework. That’s my style.
While, not technically a teacher, he was likely one before he became the principal of Bayside High. I like him mostly because the students put up with his annoying laugh. My students will have to do that. A lot.
