I'm self-taught when it comes to the use of Adobe products. Without a stitch of higher education I started a web design company, and ran it from 1994-2001. I felt that I was lacking in certain areas of design, so I enrolled in college for the first time, 13 years after graduating HS. Shortly after graduating from The Art Institute in '04, where I received a BS in Graphic Design, I was hired as a Sr. GD at Experian. I made "Sr. GD" due to my years of experience pre-college. I was a little irritated when I found that at least two of the GD's in our department didn't possess degrees. After a few months, it became clear that they were certainly competent enough to perform their jobs, although they were lax when it came to things like kerning and gutter/alley spacing. Here's the thing though...  I've seen people come out of college, with a degree based in the print world, get flummoxed when asked to convert their project for the web. At Experian, you typically wouldn't catch a guy who's great at designing landing pages, working on printed collateral, and vice versa. Fortunately if you simply take the time to learn what you need to learn, and fill in the gaps in your skill set, you'll demand a higher wage, and a more significant position in the company.

I'm a graphic designer interested in getting into teaching. I had my first interview last week at a high school here in Southern California, & I was asked to come back for a second interview next week where I am to give a 10 minute lesson to a class of 15. I have zero experience at doing this, and your video certainly helped me to understand how to behave.
