This week, I had the honor of speaking to 50 fifth graders for the Great American Teach In at the Academy at the Farm in Dade City, FL.
It was an opportunity to expose the children to careers outside of their frame of reference. Their teach explained that many kids thought the only jobs were those of their parents and the teachers at school! This was to help them expand their horizons a bit.
There was no way I could compete with the excitement of a fireman or a cop, but I found that bags of candy helped them pay attention and participate. 😉
