Jump Right In
In about two hours, I am going to try my hand at something new.
I am going to starting teaching Psychology 101 for our local Community College. I will have three sections of early college high school students, on three different campuses, five mornings a week.
I have done a lot of different kinds of teaching, but never anything quite like this. I have not had any classes in education.
But I have seen enough syllabi to make one up. I like the director of this program and her expectations for our classrooms. I feel enough liberty to make passing references to their textbook and teach them what I have in my heart and soul. This is not rocket science.
But it still feels like looking at the deep end of the pool this morning.
Fortunately everything I have ever done, that meant anything was a deep end of the pool experience.
Day 1 - Woodburn Campus. 21 students. It felt a little choppy, but good.Post a Comment
Tomorrow the Dallas Campus.
then repeat, and then on Friday a three hour class here in Salem.
By then I ought to have it down.
