Never did I picture myself teaching online. It found me. I have discovered that so many other colleagues have fallen into their practice of teaching. Careers in accounting, biology, nursing, the legal field and our criminal justice system led many of my community college colleagues to find their place in the classroom later in their lives. It suits them well. They share their passion for a field of study and bring real-world expertise and practical knowledge to their students. For me, a career educator, teaching was my passion. To be able to deliver my subject matter, which is global, social and cultural history to the most diverse of students and to many learning styles was my goal. As a millennial, I believe especially when I began my career that there was an underlying misconception that I might be a digital native, comfortable teaching online and most of all fluent in everything technology.
