So tonight is my Lefse class for the St. Paul Community Ed. I'm extremely nervous and I'm boggled by this. I have been teaching classes in the SCA, out of the SCA, as a TA at University (many years ago), why am I nervous about this? Probably because people are paying to attend this class. ($38/ person, eek!) Probably because I'm having a case of the 'Harlots' and am worrying about all the things that can go wrong.
I get lost finding the school
I can't find the classroom I'm supposed to use and I'm late
No one shows up
My equipment doesn't work
The lefse sucks (this has NEVER happen, but there is always a first)
There is no refrigerator or counter space to use the griddles and we end up using desk tops and the dough is warm and sticky. (supposedly the class is in a kitchen/ home ec room so this should not be the case)
I suck at teaching and everyone hates me.
As I'm writing this I just got a call from the Community Ed office to finalize things for the class tonight. They are offering me MORE money because I only have 5 people signed up for the class (my limit was 10). Wow. They want me back in the Fall too. Cool! I also confirmed that there are countertops, sinks, outlets and refrigerators in my room. Less to worry about; except the sucking....
