This week I completed my Ala Carte project and I must say, I totally enjoyed it! I chose to do an interview for submission into the Jefferson Story Project. When the semester began, this project was not available and I had started work on a digital scrapbook. I had the formatting and information sources collected. I just wasn’t feeling enthusiastic about it. The book “Listening Is An Act of Love” was one of the recommended books for this course. I began reading it at the beginning of the school semester thinking I could get a jump-start on some required readings. I fell in love with the idea. So when the project was added to the project list, I just couldn’t resist. I wanted to share my story.
The questions were regarding my education and moments that meant something to me and how I fit in at Jefferson Community and Technical College. As some of you may know, I am an older person (not too old!). Many of my peers ask why I chose to go back to school now with retirement not too far in the future. Well for one, I will never retire until I am not able to work anymore. But that is another story. I asked my youngest son to do me the honors of conducting the interview. It gave us an opportunity to do something together. He also learned something about me!
Here is a link to my recorded interview. Enjoy! Renee Roberts ENG102 Ala Carte Project: Jefferson Project
