Senior Projects 2010

Wednesday, this week past, was senior project night at the school where I teach French. Each year I am assigned seniors as advisees. This year, one of my advisees chose to explore DJing as a career. This subject is near and dear to my heart as I've been in the industry for the last 23 years.

My other advisee, after having to ditch her original idea of audio/sound design as a career exploration, acted as the stage manager for a Meadville Community Theater production of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolfe". She also blogged about the experience. We as a district would like to promote this practice as the preferred method of tracking student service hours. Blogging, especially during community service projects, has had the tangential effect of promoting the community institutions with which our students are working.

One of the seniors also used this photo op to hassle me.
