I’m going to teach, can you believe it?

Well, I think I’m going to do it.  I’m going to start teaching.  At shows I get asked a lot if I teach and the answer is always ‘no’.  And I put of responses from glass schools who email and ask me to join their schedule.  Not for reasons people might think though.  I never thought I could fill a whole day.  I also didn’t think I could travel that much with small kids at home.  Times change, kids get older.

So, I’m nervous about putting it out there and working up all of the specifics of who needs what supplies and all that.  I use a lot of different stuff.

Ok, enough worrying.  I’m working on my first tentative date and that’s that.
