Hello from Centennial, CO
Drafted: Thursday – September 22, 2022 (First post of this travelogue)
Posted: September 24, 2022
I am in Centennial, CO teaching a Mechanical Drives class at NTT. This is a three-day class and one that I have enjoyed teaching off and on for 22 years. When the class is held in Denver it is the best of all worlds in that I don’t have to fly to a destination, yet they approve a motel room (Staybridge Suites) and it is a very short drive to the office each day.
This is the first class that I have taught in a few months. I made the decision to take the summer off and I have not missed teaching class one bit. That said, it was good to get back in the saddle and it was not hard to get up to speed.
Often times when I teach a class in Denver it is mostly, or all, local students. In this class I have 5 students all from out of state and from long distances. More amazing yet, is the fact that they are all engineers. When I heard that, I thought “oh boy” this will be a challenge. However it has been one of the best classes I have had. They have been very active in the class with good contributions and good questions. That really makes a satisfying experience for me.
That is all for this travelogue.
