What I got out of this class

Even though I'm the one teaching the class, doesn't mean I didn't get something! Here's what I wrote for the Day 10 prompt:

What I got out of this class

It has been a while since I created a class. As my own career has shifted, subjects I once taught I no longer feel the need to. In creating a class about journaling—something completely different than my other classes—I've rekindled something I thought I lost. The love of teaching. It's in creating this class and going through the prompts myself that I realize it's not that I stopped being a teacher, I just didn't have that next thing worth teaching. Once I did, the class sort of just happened.

This serves as a reminder for me to follow my curiosity wherever it takes me and to trust that as long as I'm excited about what I'm doing, I'll naturally want to teach it.
