I may miss teaching

March 08, 2005 at 05:22 PM

I had to give a demo at work today of an application we've been working on forever and I really enjoyed doing it. I think I may actually miss teaching. Let me clarify that last statement a little. I miss teaching, not being a teacher. Small but important difference there. I like explaining things to people, or maybe more accurately, telling other people what to do. I really enjoy sitting and having discussions about pretty much anything, especially technology related.

I have a tendency to talk Christina's ear off about random web design stuff. I keep showing her new things I learn or have done, she feigns interest while I'm showing her what I did and then drifts away when I start talking about how I did it. That's what really bothered me about teaching, nobody cared about the technology courses I was teaching. The students didn't want to be there and 95% of them were only there because it was a required elective that was supposed to be a blow off. It's really frustrating to try to explain something you really love to people who don't give a crap.

I've been thinking a lot lately that I'd really like to teach web design at the college level some day. Definitely something I could see myself doing as a supplement to a web design career when I'm older. Of course, who knows what web design will even be by then. I just want to find people who want to learn what I've learned before them.

It would help to know things about web design if you are going to be teaching it. Feel free to consult me anytime.

you should come with us...there's always discussions about technology and you'd be working with people who actually have a clue...
