This year I taught a course in professional practices at Parsons for a semester. Some of the staff was on sabbatical so it was a chance to change up the routine. I highly recommend teaching a course if the opportunity arises. Your creative juices get flowing figuring out how to connect with different personalities. After the semester the two nicest compliments from students were 1) I told them what they really needed to know and 2) My wisecracking ways made the boring stuff tolerable.
