Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:
"I never thought about teaching clay until I'd been working with it for about 9 years. I certainly am not as skilled with the medium as many people here on Polymer Clay Central, but I know enough that I can share my passion with others. Even teaching someone your basic skills can open them up to a world of creativity that they never knew existing before. As this is a "spare-time" endevour for me and my normal job is very stressful, this is a wonderful outlet to release my stress and I've taught others to use it that way as well.
