Starting my 17th year as an MCT and my how things have changed. My first class as an official MCT was the MCSE track for Windows Server NT4. I had six students that would meet every weekend for six months. I believe five of the six did earn their MCSE. Thousands and thousands of students latter, I rarely have a student in the classroom as I teach the majority of my courses online with students from around the world. Recently, I had a SQL Server course with students from California to India. That is a difference of 13 time zones. I will admit there are a few topics that I get tired of teaching. But whenever a student gets interested and starts asking questions, I get re-energized and remember why I love this profession so much. I really do have a passion for learning.
