I taught one of my knitting workshops tonight; Knit Your Own Valentine. I haven't taught it in a while, but I've got plenty of samples and a detailed lesson plan prepared. I don't know if this happens to other teachers (My friend Margaret first said this when we were teaching at Stitches; it happens to me when I teach ballet as well) No matter how well I know the subject, what I'm usually thinking during the class is, "When are they going to figure out that I'm a complete imposter?"
Amazingly, they haven't yet. They even asked me back.

Congratulations! And I hope they told you that the Stitches they really needed you at was the one out West. (I can wish.)
I read once that those who are the brightest and the best at what they do are the ones most likely to wonder about whether others will catch them out as being imposters, ergo, they're the least likely to be. congratulations, Leigh!
