Update -- Hard Work Pays Off
One of the things I'm happiest about, honestly, is how far my teaching has come. I've found out that I'm likely to co-teach a class I've taught before in a previous semester. It was one of my first teaching experiences where I took on a lot of the responsibility, and although there were areas in which I was very happy with how things went, there were a number of things I could have done better.
One of the things I realized today, though, is that in thinking about that upcoming course assignment... I know what to do to fix it. I've already got plans. I've learned so much since my first time through and I know how to address the things that didn't turn out like I wanted. I am going to bust out all the stuff I've learned like nobody's business, and maybe at least one student will learn something useful along the way. :)
There are times when I really question where I am and how I got here. I love what I do, but I find myself wondering if I'm actually any good at it. Today, though... today I have an answer to that, and it's an answer I'm really happy about.
