For years, I’ve loved teaching what I learn. I believe it to be my duty to help others, as I’ve been helped. It’s one of the main reasons I started The Bold Report, it’s the reason I created Tim Likes to Teach,1 and why I’ve told people for years that my calendar is available to them.
Back in November, Jim Cummins invited me to give a flexbox workshop for his class at The Iron Yard. I was hooked. I knew I loved helping others learn how to build the web, but I wasn’t sure how to keep doing it.
Enter Bloc. I first saw them because my friend Niki Brown was a mentor there. Bloc is an awesome group of people teaching web design and development. They have an excellent curriculum there, and assign a personal mentor to each student.
I’m excited to say that I joined them as a part-time mentor this week. I’ll have a few students that I’ll meet with, review assignments for, and mentor into becoming excellent contributors to our industry.
I want to give a huge thank you to Chris Courtney, and the rest of the Bloc team for making me feel so welcome and valued. I have my first student appointments starting next week. I’m nervous interestingly, but looking forward to it!
