I led part two of the LLC WordPress workshop on August 25. It went pretty well, I think. I was not as nervous and felt more confident than I had the week before.
One of the best parts of the whole experience was the support and encouragement that I received from my friends Yaa, Joe, Sara, and Jess. They each took time out of their busy schedules to support me and to mentor for me on one or both nights. I’m so close to these people that it’s difficult to comprehend that this time a year ago, we didn’t know each other! This is a testament to the power of community and about how close-knit we “HackerYouvians” become.
Throughout the course, they were quick to offer advice and guidance to the learners. Whenever I scanned the class, I always caught a friendly glance and smile of encouragement from one of them. During exercises or breaks, they’d offer to get me water or come up to me and let me know that I was doing a good job. I can’t even express how much that meant to me. “Thank you” isn’t nearly enough!
I will definitely be teaching again. It was rewarding and fun!
