Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"I would toss out a couple of ideas for them to "test" themselves to see if they are ready. If they have a couple of audience-appropriate projects, and are comfortable with public speaking, I would recommend that they try out a "one time" class (ex. as an activity at a community function) and see what kind of feedback they get. Alternatively, they can be an assistant to an experienced teacher, and go from there. I would also tell them that personally, I love teaching clay classes, as I find it a great way to meet people, share something I enjoy, and appreciate others' creative energy!"
