    In Ireland I learned that there is not only one way to teach. Taht it is better to divide the ideas in easy and small concepts, even with risk of sounding simple.

    At Krono I have been teaching adults. On the one hand it has been very nice, I think I am relatively good at it and it has been nice to take off the pressures of delivery times for a while

    On the other hand, I have lacked the feeling of creating things. While I encourage my students to pursue a technology career, for many of them the course is nothing more than a paperwork for the administration. This is not enough for me. I need not only to perform a job, I want to feel that it is useful.
