I was invited by my lovely friend to a Career Day with the 4th-6th graders! I was very very nervous all month waiting for this. At the last minute - it hit me....I already had a basic slideshow ready to go. I did 4 sessions BACK TO BACK with maybe 3 minutes before starting the next one! :)
It was a very interesting day.........and I bumbled over myself...but really, when it came down to it...when I showed the pictures? It was all good. I was able to get in a flow by the 2nd time...and actually started showing them a "theme" of reflection. I was actually giggling inside - and was a little animated. :) I'm so glad I'm not good at public speaking - because I get to step back after I'm done....and wonder how I made it through. (God, thank you!) :)
Here is the last picture I took there for the kids - because they asked. :)
They also asked "what was the last picture you took??!!"...and i pulled out my camera to show them the shots from Deep Ellum wednesday nite. You gotta love it! They were a blast and by the end - they were asking for business cards & my autograph. PRECIOUS.Here is a picture that Tamara took of me - I was talking about the picture I took of Chrystine and the trash can. :) I was showing them how she was standing/sitting during the picture...and then explaining what it was. It was like a mystery to be solved and got them guessing..."where did she take this picture?" ..."What is that?".... :) very cool.
Here is the room where I got to speak. We also judged the doors for career day.
they did an AMAZING job on this door (i voted for the highest score here)
