The next semester is more than a month away but already I am excited to teach the course assigned to me, Editorial and Opinion Writing.
I tremble because I want to do it so well so badly, even better than I did the previous semester with Introduction to Journalism (notwithstanding some clerical oversights on my part).
I imagine it's going to be hard work, and I will feel so insecure again about whether or not I am doing a good job at all. But I think my desire to do really well and the fact that I have 11 years of practical knowledge of these things will tide me through.
And besides, a healthy dose of insecurity is always good. The overconfident have been proven to be complacent.
I guess we'll have the verdict by December. :)
