I Am a Phoenix

This week I’m preparing for my next nine week session at the University of Phoenix.

I do love teaching…

Composition and literature classes at brick-and-mortar colleges and universities

Creative writing workshops at wrters’ conferences and events

Tutoring high school students in English, social studies and foreign languages

Substituting at the local high school

Scratch the last one, It’s not so much fun. Not sure it even fits in the teaching category anyway. More like baby-sitting, crowd control and crisis management.

But I digress.

My favorite classes to teach are the on-line communications classes at the University of Phoenix. I love U of Ps model for education and their mission statement.

Each time I begin a new session, I become excited about interacting with the students and watching them gain confidence in their new communications skills.
