Just curious, How many of you teach Classes?

post #1 of 16

I'm just wondering how many teachers we have on this website! Do you teach Wilton, or some other method?

I've been a WMI at a cake and candy supply store called Cake Pan Alley for 4 years and I just started teaching at Hobby lobby in Feb.

Just wanted to say Hi to 'letseatcake'. I'll be taking over her classes in August at Hobby Lobby. You're a great teacher! I learned a lot. 'icon_biggrin.gif'

Go on Wilton's website and submit a form to become an instructor... if any are needed in your area, they'll contact you. I believe you have to complete their courses too... they called me when I submitted my form and she asked me what Wilton courses I had completed. When there's an opening here in my area, she said the the district supervisor in my area would call me.

Yes, you have to have completed all three of their classes. I also had to submit pictures of cakes I have made to the supervisor for my area before I was approved.

Cool! For those of you who are starting soon, good luck! And for those who have been teaching for a while, have you had a good time doing it? Any pointers for those just starting out? What would you do differently if you could start all over again?
I'll be starting the training this month, so I'm anxious to learn as much about it as I can! I feel confident in all the methods, except for a little crisis I had with roses (which I swear I used to be able to do!) But thanks to the CC queens, I figured out what I was doing wrong and I can do them again!! It sounds like there is quite a bit of paperwork and reporting you have to do - have you found it to be manageable, or a pain? How would you prepare for each class? What have been your favorite teaching moments?

I have my first Wilton class scheduled for July but nobody has signed up yet. I'm kind of glad though because it gives me another month of practicing and watching the videos!

klsunny, I know what you mean! Because the schedules are already set, I have until September to start teaching. That gives me plenty of time for training, because teaching can be so much fun when you are well prepared!
Good luck!
