I had the pleasure of speaking to the 2nd grade class today at Fort Garrison Elementary. Today was “Power Tuesday”, where the class invites someone to speak about their profession. For 15 minutes, I discussed (with a Powerpoint presentation) what it’s like to be an eye doctor. (Optometrist in my case) I also put on some light entertainment, by playing guitar and singing the White Stripe’s “Seven Nation Army” to celebrate the Raven’s Super Bowl Championship!
We then had a 15 minute question and answer session, where the kids came up with some great questions! (They even stumped me on a few! I have to be honest, I didn’t know “who invented glasses”, but I told them that they could likely find the answer on Google!)
