Yes, had to teach seminars and a few classes during my aborted Masters. The first one scared the living tar out of me. I was petrified walking up there. I made it through but was shaky by the end. The Q&A bolstered me a bit, I had really prepped for that and the students seemed to enjoy it. It got slightly easier every time but I likely had to do a dozen before I really lost the cold fear I felt, now its just simple nervousness, that never went away. My advice. Take your time. Take a deep breath when you need it. And remember, patience for everyone, including yourself.

I actualy taught a C.P.R. / Fire Fighting class near where I live I was very nervous but it all went well it was a 6 week class and after the first few classes i got comfortable and all went well i was always wandering if i would mess up in front of them but like i said all went well. http://robertchristina.blogspot.com/

When I was in high school our class was "volunteered" by the school to become catechists. So we went through the seminar and had to go to a public school once a week to give the kids a religion class. I was nervous during the first time but after that it was already fun. We taught the kids how to pray, we taught them church songs, etc.

I was able to handle a computer class of 10-20 students for four years. On the first time i had it, things were not as perfect but it works a lot. I feel good because I was able to share what i have learned. So, its really a pleasure and fulfilling to have job like that.
