“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” — William Arthur Ward
This Spring I hope to earn my stripes as both a superior and great teacher
when I teach my first ever class,
“The Art of Tablescaping”
through Longview Community College in Lee’s Summit, MO.
Working up the nerve to stand among eager students and teach what I know like the back of my hand and love like a baby has been a long time coming. Since retiring two years ago, I have taken on a relative timidity…a complete 180° from my professional life. But because I feel so passionate about the fine art of entertaining and creating enjoyable, relaxing, memorable dining atmospheres, I am stepping up to the plate and making that first pitch on March 6, 2012.
If you live in the Kansas City area and would like to take the course, I’m posting below the school’s catalog information. If you know anyone who may be interested, please pass the information along to them. Signing up is as easy as phoning the Community Education office at Longview College at (816) 604-2030. If you live outside of the metropolitan area, I’ll be quite happy with any and all support you have to give!
Above all, please pray that I don’t wet my britches in front of all those people! 🙂
