Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"I've never had a disappointing classroom experience. From children to adults, most people love the feel of clay in their hands, and usually let out little squeals of delight during the lesson. I love teaching polymer clay. If you feel confident in your abilities, then teaching is fun!"
