My Class This Week
Yesterday, when I arrived in the classroom, I could not help to see that I had been out-numbered. I was more than twice the age of every single person in the room.
This week I have a class of 40 Navy people who are getting ready to leave service. I asked a question: Do I have anyone over the age of 29? Not one hand was raised.
This group was also one of the most introverted groups (as a whole) that I have had. Difficult to pull out the information, facilitation is difficult. Perhaps, it is not that they are introverted, but that they do not want to interact with me, the old woman.
I was successful in getting them to interact with one another in an exercise, and I loved the buzz in the room. I need to try to incorporate more of that today, if feasible.
