  1. “How can anyone sit in front of a group of kids like that and not be inspired, humbled, and thankful?” I love so much that you said this and felt that way. The girls learned a lot from you, and I can’t tell you how much we appreciate you spending an evening with us!

      Hi Sandra,

      Thank YOU so much for having me. It really was a great evening. Please let me know if there’s ever anything else I can do for the troop. I was speaking with Robyn afterwards and mentioned I was completely willing to do presentations for any other badges, or even just for the sake of simple education and entertainment. I joked about math at the beginning of the session but I do have a strong background in math and business as well as science, cooking, and technology. I’m always available to help the Girl Scouts. 🙂

      If any of the girls are interested in learning more about any given instrument or if parents are looking for someone to provide lessons I would love to hear from them. I’ve taught young kids several times over the years and much prefer working with that age group than with older kids or adults who have already begun playing. I’ve always felt my strengths as a teacher lie in working with those who are completely new and inexperienced.

      I can also direct any of the parents or kids to other phenomenal teachers and musicians. I know of one in particular who I have been in talks with about putting on a clinic of sorts where she would discuss songwriting and performance. She’s one of the most talented artists in Houston and has a unique perspective on the arts and what it’s like to be a female in a community populated mostly by male artists.

      If there is interest on your part, I know she would love to try and work out the logistics.

      Thanks for reading and please feel free to pass the article along to the other moms and troop leaders. 🙂

      Be Well and Kind,
      Jason

      awww. I LOVE being considered part of the troop “family.” Really, that is special to me. Thank you. Again, any way I can continue to support, I’ll do it. 🙂
