How cool is this?

Several years ago, Mr. Perfect was asked by the Dean of the College of Architecture + Planning at the University of Utah if he would be interested in teaching graduate architecture students about structural engineering. This semester, it finally happened. In January, Mr. Perfect began his first official stint as an auxiliary faculty member of the U. He has an eight-week contract and is teaching wood structures to a class of about 15 students.

It's been fun to watch...most of the time. He's had to learn how to balance teaching (planning lessons, preparing quizzes and projects, grading assignments and quizzes) with staying on top of his load at work. Lots of late nights. Overall, I think he's really enjoying it. I'm not surprised that he's a natural teacher. He's so patient and knowledgeable, especially in his profession. He's past the halfway mark. There are only three more weeks of classes for him. Someone else will teach the next half of the semester. Maybe steel.

I hope that he's enjoying it enough to do it again, though he's not sure about the pressure of keeping up with everything. While it's a lot of fun to tell people that my husband is teaching college, it's even more fun to watch him take on a new challenge and excel at it.
