Today I taught a class for my first time ever.

It's a week long, 3 hour a day class at the local community college, for their "Kids College" program. The class is called "Create Your Own Web Page Using HTML" and is for kids 12-17.

I was pretty nervous last night, but once I got started with the class, the nervousness went away. By that point, I was just dealing with some of the rough edges. Like trying to judge how much the kids cared for the mini-lecture on the history of the WWW. Or dealing with the kids who hadn't set up a Yahoo account for a free Geocities page (and for those that had, realizing Yahoo wants you to be 13 and up if you want a Geocities page...d'oh!).

But at the end of the class when one kid said the class was just what he expected it to be (in a good way, it sounded), and when some of them thanked me...it was good.

We'll have to see how day 2 shapes up.
