Frantic Friday: A day in the life of a Photoshop instructor

Posted by on Nov 5, 2010 in Design, Everyday Stuff | No Comments

Friday’s are exhausting for me. Typically, I spend the morning trying to get a few productive things done on design projects before heading out for the day. I teach a 3.5 hour Photoshop class at Lakeland Community College on friday afternoons, and usually try to squeeze in an errand or two and/or a workout before.

I love teaching – truly love it. I take pride in breaking down very complex material into digestible information that even the most intimidated can soak up. In fact, I take pride in taking the intimidation out of it – since that’s usually the biggest obstacle. But it’s very tiring. My head needs to go full speed in most classes and I’ve always found that working at several different kinds in one day (mentally switching gears) really wears me out. Not that I’m complaining…
