Yesterday, I turned down an awesome opportunity.
Why did I turn it down?
Alright, enough of all of this ambiguity; what was this "awesome" opportunity?
Last week I was offered a position to become an adjunct faculty member at Ferris State University. I would have been teaching one 5-credit-hour class (2 hours lecture, 3 lab), Digital Multimedia Production.
At first, I thought that it would be an excellent experience and that I wanted to pursue it. Ever since going to college, I thought that it would be a great to teach other people the things that I know. This class would have been perfect for me, and I think I would have given a lot of value to the students. I was excited to get the offer, and really wanted to try and make it workout.
However, like I said above, the circumstances aren't right for it. I hope that this spring or next fall, if the offer is still available, that I could work something out to get my feet wet in the teaching field. I don't think I'd ever want to do it full-time, but as something on the side I think that it would be a lot of fun.
Ferris (specifically the Printing Department): thank you very much for this opportunity; I appreciate your thought and your offer, and I'm sorry that we couldn't work something out at this time. Please keep me in mind as a future prospect.
On a related note, if you know anyone in the Big Rapids, Michigan area that could possibly fit in this position, let me know as soon as possible!
