Still running the speaker’s bureau 

This past week saw another guest speaker in the 6th grade class at Columbia.  This is my friend Hector with whom I taught for eight years. He taught social science to the same group of students to whom I taught marketing. We made a great team. 

Hector is now athletic director at the high school where the 6th graders will eventually attend. He encouraged them to work hard, try different activities, get involved. Then he asked them to dream. 

What would their life look like when they were 25. Many stood, at the front of the class, and shared. Owner of a New York restaurant. A teacher. A sports doctor. And more typical for kids, a fireman. 

To top it off, he brought lunch for the class and reminded them to always share with others.
