I have been heard to say (loudly and vehemently) that now that I was done with my MBA, you would never find me in school again. Unless it was for a totally fun class, like say quilting or watercolour painting.
But what if I went back – not as a student – but as a teacher?
I do have a Bachelor of Education in Adult Education degree as well as a Science degree – pursued and achieved because at one point in my career I was put in charge of training at a large (125+ souls) laboratory. That was a lot of responsibility and I felt I needed some “training” myself, so as to do the best job possible. Turns out it was only for a brief time period because part-way through my studies, I took the opportunity to join my current employer. I still completed my schooling and the degree, but never got to use it in the way I had envisioned…
My dad worked part-time as a teacher after he retired. He taught a course prepping aspiring millwrights to take their exam, at his local community college. He loved it.
I could see myself doing something similar, when I retire. Whether for a fun or serious course…I do know how to put a course together and deliver it.
And, I do have a career’s worth of knowledge to share.
And, if I created an online course (an introvert’s dream!), I could do it from anywhere I happened to be at the moment.
