Look at me ... I'm a Knitting Instructor!

It may sound risky and just plain nuts, but I left 15 years of teaching secondary English to disgruntled teachers two weeks ago and ended my career. Just like that.  No looking back.  Now, two weeks later, I find that I am back to teaching ... THIS time, however, it's teaching something that involves ZERO papers to grade and no idealistic parents and no students who are sitting in the class room literally against their wills and no contact logs to maintain.  Sounds like a dream, right?  Oh, yes it is! 

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT:  I have been hired to be the new knitting instructor for the Monroe Art Guild, and I am doing a monstrous dance for joy!  I get to knit for my job!  Should I say that again?  It sounds so awesome!  I am booked through November, and I can't wait to get started!

I know that friends and others in my community read this blog from time to time, so I am posting my schedule, to date, here for everyone to check out.  If you are interested, just contact the Art Guild to sign up.  I might be able to squeeze in an afternoon class or two this summer is there are interested participants, as well.  The specific course information should be available on the art guild website (http://www.monroeartguild.org).
