Application day

After applying for the Alaska Robotics Comics Camp yesterday, today I did another application. This time for a job. Primary Ethics, the non-profit organisation that runs the ethics classes I teach, is seeking people to train ethics teachers.

I remember the training course I did nearly 3 years ago, and I’m sure I can deliver the training. I have all the relevant experience and skills as per the job description. And it’s a contract position, expecting an average of 2 full days of work per month. This is exactly the sort of thing I wanted, to give me a bit of income while still allowing me to do my creative projects close to full-time in an effort to turn them into income as well. So here’s hoping!

Speaking of Ethics, today was my weekly class with the Year 6 students. We discussed reasons why it’s okay to kill animals for meat (next week discuss reasons why it isn’t okay). Most of the class were away today – being year 6 kids near the end of the year, they had a high school orientation at one of the nearby high schools, to prep them for moving up in January. With only about 8 kids, the discussion was tighter and more focused, and I got a lot of good responses from them.

  1. Good luck on the contract job. Sounds way more fun than my own last contract job between full-time work. I was also doing training … for the Internal Revenue Service, our federal tax agency. Mind you, the IRS folks couldn’t have been nicer and I got paid-for travel, which I enjoyed.

    We couldn’t do the sort of ethics training you’re describing at most public (government) schools in the USA without a lot of controversy, because our religious conservatives would object to even considering the possibility of disagreeing with their doctrines.

    1. The religious conservatives here also objected strongly, but the government ignored them.
