  • I reached out to our local Community Education office a few days ago, asking how I could go about offering a course in the Fall. In my email I outlined the type of course I would like to offer: one centered around health and nutrition topics.

    I didn't hear back for several days and began to get a bit discouraged. Even though I am a parent, patience is not my strong suit. I thought I would give it a couple more days and then I would give them a call if I didn't hear back.

    Today, I received a response from a woman at the Community Ed. office, and it was more than I could have hoped for.

    Corie, the Community Ed. employee, sent along all of the information I needed to become a new teacher, but beyond that, she noted her excitement for having a class on nutrition and health, since they've never held a course like that before.

    I was surprised on several levels: 1) at her overall excitement and 2) at the lack of previous health and wellness courses. For me those two things alone are reassurance that my LEAP! is the right one after all.
