A few posts ago I mentioned that over the summer I was certified to teach fitness classes and that I hoped to begin teaching occasionally on campus.
Well, I’m happy to report I’ve actually started! Here’s a post from the Vixen Athletics blog about a class I guest-led last week, including this quote from one of the students:
“Simply put–it was absolutely wonderful: loads of fun. I was smiling nearly the entire time, and how cool is it that a gym class gets to be taught by the president of the college?”
For years I taught Victorian literature and other English lit and composition courses: believe me, teaching fitness is a quite different enterprise. But what a treat it is to engage with students and colleagues in this additional way, and to participate directly as president in the College’s commitment to health and well-being for our students!
