I am Proud to Teach Online Classes

I am always meeting new people and striking up a conversation, and it always comes to “What do you do for a living?” When I answer that I teach online as an adjunct instructor at a couple of different universities, the next question is, “Oh, do you teach at the local university?” “No” I reply, “I teach online classes.” I often get the response of “Oh, I could never do that. I have to be in a classroom.” Or worse, sometimes I get a different reaction.
