Teaching isn’t something that I set out to do.  If you had asked me 10 years ago what I wanted to be when I grew up the answer would have been a writer.  But, I have learned that being a writer and getting paid to write are two very different things.  I am a writer.  But, paying writing gigs are hard to come by.  This realization coupled with boredom prompted me to return to the life of academia and pursue a Master of Arts in Communication.

Job searching the second time around was even more difficult than the first.  How was I supposed to know that we would be in a recession?  But, the twists and turns that I have taken in my professional life brought me to teaching.  And I like it.  The past year I taught Effective Oral Communication at a two-year for profit college.  Currently, I am teaching Effective Speaking at a non-profit college.  It’s a step up and I’m looking forward to the other opportunities that it may bring.

I also like fashion.  (Not with a capital F.  High-end fashion just seems too unrealistic.) And clothes.  And while I realize that the focus of my day is the content that I am teaching the students, I can’t help but notice them staring at me.  Just because I am a teacher doesn’t mean that I have to wear apple appliqued sweaters or dowdy pants.

Follow along as I navigate through being a stylish and effective teacher.
