The tour continues..and this time it was a trip just down the hill near downtown Moline. My visit took me to Ericsson Elementary School and Ms. Michael Decker’s 3rd Grade class. A very special day as it was Career Day.
What a great opportunity it was to share my passion on a topic that I’ve enjoyed ever since I was their age and did they love my stories! Yes, folks, I was a 100% pure weather geek back then. These mighty hawks asked some great questions such as how “fun” my job is, to why being a meteorologist is so important especially in this area. I also addressed the fact that success in the classroom is your ticket to choosing whatever you what to become as you get older.
When I asked if anyone of them would like to be a future meteorologist at WQAD, here was their response:
Uh oh! I’ve got some competition down the road. Thanks for a wonderful visit!! :)
