ICE This Weekend

Going to Living Adventures this weekend for the Instructor Certification for the ACA. Its been a good summer for learning the things I need to know, and be able to do. The hard part for me has been the classroom phase ... leading a discussion on various topics is not my normal role, I feel I need to know the topic intimately before I can feel comfortable teaching it. So saying there is a lot to know to be a good instructor, would be a huge understatement!
Jill, Chris, and I are heading up Friday night, and planning on spending a couple days on the islands after the ICE weekend. This should give me some time to give this all some thought, and maybe put it into some perspective.
