During the year, I often postulate to students (and even to teachers and staff) about the importance of stepping out of one’s comfort zone, trying something new, and being able to learn from failure. This past Friday, I embraced my own advice by being the auctioneer at this year’s Spring Gala/Auction. For those of you who attended, it was obvious I am an unseasoned novice – I found it hard to even keep track of the highest bid! Thankfully, the auction went very well and the overall Spring Gala was a hit!
To help lighten the mood before I began the auction, I shared a quirky video of my “education” into the world of being an auctioneer. You can click here to see the video!
In the meantime, for those of you who did not attend the auction, I encourage you to please consider donating to this special event since funds directly support the children’s education at FWM. Please look for an email with more information on post-auction donations or reach out to Alison Kistner. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
