Based on my first class, the idea is working out well.
- Time together. I get to spend an hour with my daughter and teach her about science. Best of all, she considers it a fun time with me.
- Already know some students. Usually, I don't know any of the students on the first day of class. In this class, 25% of the kids are our daughter's friends.
- Teach about working. Last year, I paid my daughter 50 cents per class to help clean up the room. I am continuing to do this so that my daughter can learn about earning money for work.
For now, our daughter is still delighted that she is in a class that I am teaching. I think it's great that I can spend time with her and get paid for doing so :-)
