Evening Classes Prompted Change Of Career

Not that many years ago, I was interested in taking up an adult teaching career – having spent many a happy evening at college with other like minded adults, brushing up on what was the new fixation – getting myself an ms driving licence – basically as it turned out, a card that told everyone I had participated in and passed seven modules within the ms software package.    This inovlved general and then very detailed exercises in word; excel for the spreadsheet fanatics in this world – I proved a quick learner.   The other programmes were enjoyable and I helped the tutor deal with several students sent from the local detention centre to brush up existing skills which just needed tweaking to suit working in our country.  I never did apply to teach as another opportunity came my way which I enjoyed but always wonder if I could have made the difference to other folks’ lives?
