I am in the middle of my intermediate/advanced class at Pontotoc Technology Center right now. Last night we had an excellent session, and I think everyone had lots of “ah ha” moments.
We started the evening with a walking tour inside the Tech Center, then as it cooled off outside and the light started to mature, we walked to the fire training area east of the main building and explored a bit. The light rapidly morphed into the so-called “golden moment,” and I was able to demonstrate both the advantages of last light, and the notion that you have to work fast in order to take advantage of it.
Sometimes when I am extra busy in the daily business of newspaper, I can forget how much I love teaching, but during sessions like last night’s, I remember why I get so much out of it. Hopefully my students feel the same way.
