I kept applying and never got a reply back. I got lucky seeing a sign in a store a few weeks ago.

I've wanted to be an instructor ever since Day 1 of Course 1

I tried two years ago to start teaching. Kept bugging them and finally a Wilton lady called me back. There were no openings near me. I was really bummed. I wonder if I should try again.?.? It seems like a fun part time job.

I have to admit that I forgot how much fun it was to teach cake decorating! I left it before to start a full time job. I still did decorating, but only here and there for friends and family- no real growth. I think I have learned more in the six months that I have been teaching again than in the entire 7 years I didn't.
My favorite student so far is a lady who has been baking and 'decorating' for 30 years-- I was kind of intimidated by her (what could I possibly teach HER?)-- every single class she exclaims "I've learned so much!" It's great.
Any favorite student stories?

another one here I have been teaching at Michaels for about 4 1/2 years. I love it and still keep in contact with some of my past students.

Tracy, I think they only hold on to the apps for 6 months so it is worth a try. And as you said there has to be an opening. Where I live there is only two places that offer the classes. I've been at Michaels for 6 years, and the girl before me was there forever as well. So you just have to get it at the right time.

Tmac, I had a student at the end of last year that took the first Wilton classes back in the 70s. She wanted to learn fondant and gumpaste so she came back for Course 3 and the F/GP. When she told me she took the class in the late 70s I thought, wow, I was barely even born when you started, and like you wondered what she could learn from me. But I was able to teach her some things she didn't now and enjoyed having her in the classes. icon_smile.gif

Texas Superstar thanks for the heads up. I did not know they only kept the apps for 6 months. Maybe I will try again in all my spare time!

I've been one at Michaels for just over a year. Love it but have trouble trying to fill a daytime class (trying to do it while the kids are in school).
