I really get a kick out of public speaking. This week I was invited to speak to the kids in the Drafting class at Estrella Foothills High School. I decided to go general and personal so no power point. I was kind of all over the place but found my stride after this guy up front yawned in my face. I have to remember to make it about them in some way.
No matter how advanced computers get I want kids to learn how to sketch. Drawing an idea in front of people creates understanding so quickly. I hope at least a couple of them get a hold of some buff trace paper and markers. I have 2 more high schools to visit this month. I think I will stick to the rule of 3 topics: training to be an architect, experience working for architects and the journey of having my own firm.
