Forget that other saying about teaching. I believe: Those Who Can, Do. Those Who Teach, Do Better.
I became a certified yoga teacher in Manhattan when I realized I didn’t want to continue in institutionalized education to get a Masters in Film, but I did want to stay in New York. While I don’t teach regularly (anyone up for a revival of #YonceYoga ???), it has supported my own personal yoga practice, and allows me to appreciate those who do teach.
When I was a high school drama teacher in England, it reminded me to take a look at how I was encouraging my kids to follow their dreams, passions and ideals, and apply it to myself. It also made me a stronger actor at the time, since I was talking technique on the daily.
Now, I get to make videos of all varieties. It’s like I’m combining my life’s work: from being a scrappy and resourceful Theatre student at UBC with all the aspects of my conventional broadcast career. I’ve learned a bunch of things over the years, and get excited to learn and apply more. .
Though I love learning from other people, I often forget that I don’t know what other people don’t know and think that just because I know it doesn’t mean they do.
I’m stoked that @Thinkific has given me an opportunity to share some of the things I know and are encouraging me to delve deeper into teaching again. .
If you are interested in learning more about creating an online course, check out the summit this week, in the link in my bio. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
