Last month, Christina Benjamin and I visited Southwest Middle School to talk about the variety of jobs available for the Language Arts. Our talk included blogging, editing, social media specialist, librarian, agent, movie critique, and the list goes on and on. It was awesome to hear so many focused answers from the students when they were asked what plans they had for the future and what classes they would need to reach their goals. Although few had to do with creative arts, I was impressed by these students.
Southwest made us feel like stars, with a special menu and meal prepared by the students of the culinary program. I enjoyed a delicious curry chicken salad with fresh bread, and cookies for dessert. Students met us at the entrance and guided us back to our classroom for the presentation. The event was very well planned and I am proud to have been a part of it! A big thanks to Kristin Pitts for the invite.
