Imagine my surprise when, a couple of hours later, my phone rings and Villa Maria Elementary shows up on the caller id. “Is she sick,” I wonder? Nope. But the Erie lawyer who’d volunteered to give the presentation is and they need a last minute fill-in. Can I be there in an hour? Count on it.
So, there’s no time to assemble a presentation and I’m not known for my innate ability to connect with 13 year-olds. I’m going to have to wing it and history does not suggest that this is an approach that holds much promise.
Turns out my worries were for naught. The kids were well-prepared, thoughtful and involved. They had questions ready for me and they were patient and tolerant of my overly-complicated replies. By the end of the day, I’d given three 30 minute presentations to different classes and I wasn’t ready to leave. They, however, had more than enough of me and made it clear it was time for me to go.
Turns out winging it to a bunch of 13-year-olds is more fun than I thought. Hope she invites me to the next career day. I wonder if 14-year-olds are as tolerant?
