Cruel Tutelage of Pai Mei

In the end, I think I’ll become an educator. I always talked about wanting to eventually become a teacher after working in the ‘real world’ for a decade or so… and goal still exists.
So why become an educator? It’s quite rewarding. Also, my parents are both educators. I already have lots of classroom experience teaching students [swf video] and faculty how to use technology—but that’s not where my real rewards were reaped.
The most rewarding part of work has come to me through few of the guys in the office. They have gone through my “boot camp” when it comes to website development with XHTML CSS PHP and MySQL. The boot camp isn’t quite as intense as what Ms. Kiddo went through with Pai Mei in Kill Bill, but it’s pretty rough at times.
However, Robby and Derek have amazed me with the amount they’ve learned and the questions they’ve asked. Totty hasn’t really stepped on board with PHP and MySQL, but he’s come leaps and bounds with XHTML/CSS. We’ll have to find a good ‘real’ project for him.
