Tomorrow I have to give my first ever presentation on planning to a captive audience of AP Geography students at the local high school. Look at me giving back to my profession and taking AICP all serious like! I hope to catch an ear or two and turn them on to planning as a possible career choice while they are still young, impressionable, and not too jaded. After all, I didn’t know that this job even existed until I was tunneling through college level gen ed courses.
I studied up on a thread related to speaking to elementary school students and I’m pretty sure it will go ok despite the fact that there’s no specific area that I’m supposed to discuss.…yet still, there’s that small voice in my head that is agonizing over saying the right thing and the potential for being eaten alive by the cool kids. I’m afraid I’ll feel like a 15 year old.
