I Have a New Job
I just posted on Facebook the other day about my change of jobs. I have been teaching High School Mathematics for the past 20+ years, and doing photography “on the side”. Well, next school year, I will be a FULL TIME Photography teacher. This is a dream come true for me. To be paid to talk about and take photos all day every day is what dreams are made of. A good friend told me that to actually do your passion for a living doesn’t come around every day. I am really excited.
I have been teaching a couple of classes of photography mixed in with my Math classes the past couple of years. One of the things I like to do with my class is to take them out of school, and walk around a local Kampung, and take photos. It give the kids a chance to practice all they have learned about the camera in a real life setting. The kids all take photos, and then we go back to the classroom and edit the photos, and then we print their favorites. The best part is we then take the prints back to the Kampung and hand them out to the people who were photographed. It’s really a great little service project.
