Big Plans- Boy Scouts District Executive

I am so excited to announce that the BIG PLANS is BACK this year! It kind of went on hiatus last year, but it was definitely something I wanted to do again.

Of course, we started by reading the book Big Plans by Bob Shea.

Then I had my students help me create their own Big Plans poster of professions that interested them.
(Yes, one of my students really did say Evil Master Mind. After talking to him, he really wants to be like the crazy scientist on Phineas and Pherb. Seriously, the student is totally sweet.)

As you can see, I have my work cut out for me this year. :)
 We also created a chart of questions we would like to have answered about the professions we chose. The chart below is the one I remade. The first one was not as neat. I also added a question at the end that you won't see asked in this "episode".

Now, Ms. Harper in the office knows to send professionals who enter the building my way, just for this reason.  My students love meeting new people and getting to know them. :)

So, imagine our happiness when who should show up at our door, but a representative for the Boy Scouts of America!

(Ok, maybe he was going around to all the classes, but he agreed to come back to our room when he was done!)

Our first Big Plans interview of the year goes to... Mr. Phil Garrett, II; District Executive for the Boy Scouts in our area!

1. What steps did you follow to become a representative for the Boy Scouts? (Link)

2. What level of education is needed for this profession?

3. How long is your work day? (Link)

4. Is there a lot of practice needed for your job? (Link)

5. What does a typical work day look like? (Link)

6. Do you use any special equipment in your profession? (Link)

7. What is the starting salary for this position?

Thank you, Mr. Phil for being our first volunteer for this year's Big Plans segment! We appreciate your time!
