Omg omg omg!
I'm going to be teaching a group of middle schoolers about comics for 8 weeks! *flails with excitement*
I did fight for the high school position, but since I'm doing my observations at a high school my professors and I decided I should teach a different age group. Plus this one girl doesn't have much confidence or good experience with high schoolers, so she needs that. I know the folks at the high school will give her some good experiences!
I'm hoping to get a better experience with middle school students, the previous middle school I observed at was worse than a zoo! It really opened my eyes and made me remember that there are bad schools, there are bad students, and that there are also good students- I really hope the group of girls I wanted to take under my wing are doing well, I went to a similar school and was a lot like them so I hope that they don't wind up with my issues. I am looking forward to giving these students a good head start into making comics. Also I'm hoping their questions and my experiences with them will help me make a better tutorial for everyone on here!
