How do I know if I'll be a good teacher?
Don't let this scare you!
So maybe the idea of teaching is new to you. Maybe you have never taught anything...
Or maybe you have experience as a teacher.
Really teaching sewing is not the much different than having a class full of school kids or college kids.
The big difference is rather than paper, books and pencils, you have fabric, scissors, and machines.
This does take a lot more involvement than a student sitting at a desk.
If fact even though students sit at a machine they do a lot of standing for the rest of the tasks involved.
Here are a few things to being a good teacher!
#1 - be aware (always watching)
#2 – be active (moving around the classroom)
#3 – be attentive (helping when needed)
Now the other thing I want to address is Mindset!
So rather than ask “IF you will be good” how about you just “BE a good teacher”.
If you may this decision you brain will automatically start thinking up ways to “be a great” teacher.
I know that is you are here watching this video you are totally interested in being a sewing teacher. And, I have no worries that you can and will be a great teacher.
My Tip for Getting Some Sewing Teacher Practice
If you are nervous about teaching and want to get some practice under you belt, my suggestion is to teach a few classes for free.
Invite over someone you know and give it a try.
It might be best if this is not your daughter or grand daughter because usually your family members are the hardest students.
After class evaluate where you were good and where you could be better.
In the future I plan to make some more videos on this topic, so stay tuned for those.
Remember, I'm here to help you be a GREAT sewing teacher!
