End of Summer Nearing

Although Summer officially continues for a few more weeks, the end of summer is nearer for me. I have already started teaching at St. Clair County Community College two days a week and Lapeer ETC starts this week with two days of professional development before students arrive the day after Labor Day.

I'd say on a scale of 1-10, I'm at about a 7 for my Interactive Media class. I moved classes this year and I still have a lot of work to do before day 1 of class. This is my main concern.

I feel pretty good about everything else. The curriculum is coming along--since this is only year two, I've got more work to do again this year. We hired a paraprofessional to help with class. She has lab experience and will be a much needed asset to the program. My goal is to make IM the premier digital media class in the state. Then, I'll work on the country.

I'm thinking about putting in a proposal to speak at MACUL this year on how to start a successful digital media program. We'll see!
