Had a grand time earlier this week, telling to two assemblies - 3rd thru 5th grade, then 1st and 2nd graders. We - the kids and I - had a great time.
They were attentive, enthusiastic, responsive and appreciative - we majored in audience participation.
Then...afterwards, when the kids are gone and it's just the adults, and you're packing up and heading out . . . and NOBODY says ANYTHING remotely like a compliment or an expression of appreciation - not even, "Nice try."
Ever been there? (It isn't just me, is it???)
How do you handle such instances and not let it get you down?
