Bella rides the ferry to Fishers Island to visit the school there.

Deb gave a presentation to the lower school in the morning and the kids loved having two, well behaved dogs in school. I gave a PowerPoint presentation in the afternoon for the high school:  "How a Dog Could Help You Find Your Direction." I included a writing exercise at the request of the English teacher, and the students shared the results of this free writing exercise. Amazing!

Bella and I were invited back to Stonington High School in CT to speak to the AP Psychology Class. Our topic was:  "Choices:  How Do We Know What To Do?" I shared my experiences with career choices, told Bella's story and she had a wonderful time snuggling with the students. We also discussed how the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator can be used to help with career direction, and I mentioned how I used the "Do What You Are" book in my career counseling work. 

It was so nice to be with students who have just made a huge choice--where they'll attend college--and to give them some guidelines for their future choices. Bella as always, was the star!
