A professional growth opportunity AND a vacation of sorts!

I get summer vacay a week early! Goooooo me!

I have an opportunity to work at a special camp for high school kids who are into journalism. I'll get to help teach, in workshop style, journalism writing, elements of layout and design, and use of photos and graphics in yearbooks or newspapers. My minor is actually Journalism, so I'm excited to use it in another way. This is going to be great!

I get to actually teach!

I get to miss work for a week but it still get paid- we're calling it professional development!

It's a fabulous addition to my resume!

I get to be in a very cool college town for a whole week and can explore, and will have time to myself to do whatever- read, shop, research. I love that there's play time built in!

I can make professional connections in education and in the world of news media.

I get to work with kids who are INTERESTED in writing/ journalism/ photography and who are usually good students.

I'm excited. I head out on July 9! Whoot-whoot!
