This morning I participated in Career Day at John Wesley Dobbs Elementary School. I spoke to four classes.
When I told Mr. Ramsey's second-grade class how much I enjoy reading in my free time, he interrupted me.
"Will you say that again, please?"
"I enjoy reading in my free time."
"Can you repeat that one more time?"
"I enjoy reading."
"Did you hear that class? He likes to read in his free time."
The highlight in each class was the Q&A.
Ms. Sevier's fifth-grade class offered the most surprising questions.
One girl asked, "If you had to choose between traveling and taking pictures, which would you choose?"
A boy then asked if I've ever gone into the woods to take pictures of deer.
"No, but I bet our newspaper's photographer Joeff Davis has."
The boy cringed.
"Isn't he scared that the deer will attack him?"
A girl in Ms. Madavo's class asked me if I would write an article about Dobbs. I promised that I would write about the school on Creative Loafing's website and include a photograph.
So here it is:
The kids were welcoming, attentive and enthusiastic. I had lots of fun. I hope the kids did, too.
