Teaching At Community College

So, a strange turn of events happened several weeks ago. Though I had recently gone back to school in Pasadena to study Industrial Design, I wound up having to [temporarily] drop out as I was offered a teaching position at a Community College in Whittier, CA. I am teaching their “Principles Of Digital Photography” class.

10 minutes before start of class, students still coming in.

This is the third week and so far so good. In fact, I’ve been asked to not only continue on through the fall, but to add more classes (I am contemplating developing a “Digital Music Technology” course which is more my specialty.) The thing about teaching at a Community College (which is a first for me) is the diversity of students, especially in age range. I have students from 18 years old to over 50; makes it very interesting when trying to relate to everybody!

This is definitely a new adventure for me and is allowing me to not only share my love of photography with others, but is forcing me to keep my skills honed and my knowledge accurate.
