Rachel: Week 1

What a crazy week. Who would have ever thought that trying to plan events would be something unlike any other. It becomes your responsibility to find/create an event, tell people about the event, be at the event, and then actively work to get people there. As you can see from our first turn out we might need to work a little harder at the actively getting people there. The hardest thing about events, especially cultural events, is getting people out of their comfort zone. People are not apt to do things that they would not normally do, especially with people they would not normally be with. For our first event we planned a movie afternoon to see the movie Frozen. We didn't quite have too many takers, but that could have been because of the crazy cold weather or the fact that we really haven't had a chance to show our faces in the IEP classrooms yet and really the only advertising we have worked at is on Facebook and by word of mouth; and even though this turn out isn't ideal, it is a starting point, and a starting point is exactly what we need. This whole semester is going to be a learning experience because this is something that I have never done before. Still excited to get into the classrooms this week and keep spreading awareness and getting students excited about our events. Onto the next one!
