Day 237 – Teacher for a Day

August 25, 2009

I got the chance to teach two classes today at the spur of the moment! I went to work this morning (at Amherst Steele High School), and found out the teacher that the district hired to teach two visual design courses quit the night before. Since it was the first day of school, there were two full classes of students who were without a teacher, and the classes started in a half-hour. The students were just going to have a long, boring study hall, so I volunteered to teach some basics of web design and photography to the two classes. I really enjoyed it, and I hope the students got something out of it. The rest of the day was hectic with lots of tech problems, but at least those 3 hours went well. Today was my last day of work. I am spending Wednesday packing, then I am going back to Hillsdale on Thursday.

I had a wonderful evening with Amanda. We went out to dinner, shopped a little while at Crocker Park, and then saw Julie & Julia (it is a very long movie!). Tomorrow, I pack, then pick up Aaron and Jayme at the airport, then we are all driving up to Hillsdale Thursday morn!
