My favorite things about on-line teaching

These are a few of my favorite things about teaching on-line.

NOT schlepping 180 lbs of supplies on an airplane.  And wondering how I'm going to get everything in the trunk when someone picks me up. And shipping a ton of boxes and hoping they all actually arrive.

Teaching with my feet up on the desk, while wearing my favorite socks! Makes it even better with a lovely view out the window and cup of hot coco in my favorite hand-made mug. I love hand-made mugs.

And most of all - interacting with students from all over the globe!

In my last class I had students from the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland

And students from all over the United States too!!! AZ, CA, CO, CT, FL, HI, IL, KY, MA, MD, MI, NC, NH, NJ, OK, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, WA, WV were all represented in my last class.

How cool is that!?

Registration is open for 
Put your feet up, brew your favorite cup, and join me for some great  fun!

Students don't like to carry so much stuff either just to find they didn't bring the right stuff! Meeting people from all over is great.

Sounds ideal! For both teacher and students.

I love online classes also! I don't have to worry about make up and hair. I can sit in my favorite chair with a cat on my lap, no travel, and when I am feeling a little dense, I can watch/read the info again! Of course, your dvd is great to watch over and over again also. Keep comfy!

I love online classes - they enable me to study with lots of overseas tutors I'd never meet otherwise. Looking forward to The Artist's Toolbox - it sounds like something I need to put into practice!
