Last Monday night (January 23rd), I began teaching my third online genealogy class offered through our local community college district's Community Education Program. I have five students, down a bit from last quarter, in which I had 13 students. However, I have noticed that it is harder to get students for an evening class for Winter Quarter...mainly because those who are interested in genealogy tend to be retired people, especially women, who do not want to be traveling on winter roads in the dark (not that I do, either!). A year ago, we did not get enough students to enroll in my Winter Quarter class, and had to cancel it. We have had an especially mild winter this year, and so the commute has not been too bad. My Spring Quarter class will be offered April 24 - May 15, Monday evening from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Instute for Extended Learning's Valley location at Sprague and Sullivan. If you live in the Spokane, Washington area, and are interested in taking one of my courses, check out the course schedule and registration forms available here. Please note that as of today's date, only the Winter Quarter schedule and registration forms are available. Keep checking back on the IEL website until you see the Spring Quarter information listed.
