So News Writing had me soooooo excited today. In almost all of my classes we've talked in some way about President Boyle, and I never really thought that I'd get to meet her, today made me so happy.
Now I sound like a big dork, BUT, when I was younger I went to take your daughter to work day every year and since my mom worked at Geneva College I always thought it was the coolest thing to walk on the campus (acting like I was meant to be there of course, with my little 8 year old attitude) but a few times I was able to meet with Geneva's President(s) there were two during the time my mom worked there, however they never seemed like as big of a deal as President Boyle. So when she walked in the room today it was like Elizabeth Seton HERSELF just happened to stroll into our classroom. (Insert gasp sound here.)
I was pumped. In fact I give the kids in the class that asked questions MAJOR PROPS for doing so, I was so caught up in the moment and taking notes that it totally passed by me to do so. (Probably not good for my future.) I really got A LOT out of class today though. I feel like even though I was not a full participant-I still was able to take in a lot of information and fully soak in what was going on. I surprise myself sometimes (actually a lot of times this has happened this school year) but when I stay quite and let the class take its course through peers discussion and teachers responses I am able to catch on to a lot more than when I am trying to put my own two cents in as well.
I'm really grateful for today's class - thanks Jerz!
And Jeremy (I hate saying you're right but....) I second your radio idea.
