On (not) teaching

I'm finding myself, as I said late at night after Newcastle, itching to teach - and there doesn't seem to be much I can do about it. Last year there were the trip classes, and although I could have done without the rest of the trip hassle, I did enjoy that - but there's no trip this year, and if there was it would be someone else's, and as it is I think there's going to be someone else doing classes for the Dunedin festival, and I think that's all going to be on a smaller scale than it was two years ago anyway.

I did look into the RSCDS teaching stuff, since I seem to have finally been convinced that I want to do it (well, I ended up convinced that I was being an idiot, but the end result was the same) - but the summer school dates for this year are just all wrong for me, so I don't know what will happen about that.

And it's mostly purely selfish - I want interesting things to do - but it's also that I hate seeing people in a class not understanding things that I do understand, and not being able to help them. I'm back in the state of being not entirely sure I could do it better but willing to give it a damn good try that somehow got me into teaching the beginners four years ago - but I don't see history repeating itself with a new class, somehow.
