When time flies ...

Bumped into a ex-student today, he was not immediately recognizable, partly the full beard, partly the fact that my recollection of him was as a 16-18 year old.

The frightening bit is that he is now 30 ... and he is not one of the first students I taught in the 90's.

It was good to briefly catch up, hear how he is doing in the industry and recall some amusing anecdotes. I do miss the face to face teaching side, yet equally I love the job I now have. What was reassuring, was the fact that twelve years ago, I helped inject some knowledge and understanding of hardware support and networking into the youth. Now to see a man enjoying the first quarter of their career.

I would never encourage anyone to take up teaching, but if you do, you may be fortunate enough to see the result of your labour.
