Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"Have confidence in your abilities, read, watch videos, learn as much as you can, I am sure you will do well, you will learn about different stuff about polymer clay for the rest of your life, learning is never over. (If the person is accomplised and really good) I'd say go ahead you know you are good and you will be a good teacher I am sure. (If the person needs some brushing up and is my student,) I'd say you are good and can be better, lets work on 'xyz' a little more. (Bottom line to all of them), don't get discouraged and enjoy whatever you do. Have fun!"
