I'm so excited for our final celebration next Friday. Our wonderful students will share their websites and their reflective work. Looking forward to it!
We enjoyed learning from Kerry Tymchuk today during out 30 minute Skype call. It seems a speech writer has to be a little bit of an actor as he/she really needs to get into the character to who they are writing the speech for. It also seems like it would be a stressful job with the potential to be very rewarding. A tremendous thank you to Kerry for spending time encouraging our young minds today!
Talking with Jamie DeLoreto was a great way to spend some time. We learned so much about a career in sports marketing, and many new Boston College fans were born. It's amazing to think about the coordination it would take for a whole community like Boston to plan for key support to be provided at the 21 mile mark of the Boston Marathon. Learning about some famous alumni and their stories was also inspirational - such as the red bandanna and the ice bucket challenge. It seems every time we learn about another ELA career I find a new career I believe I would have enjoyed!
