A few months ago, Audrey was asked if she would be willing to teach adults about Monarchs. She thought that sounded fun, so today, she presented what she has learned to thirteen adults who are studying to be Indiana Master Naturalists.
The thumb drive we brought of pictures did not want to work on the computers there. So while she started her presentation, someone worked hard to get her slideshow working. She was able to use her pictures at the end as a review and also to discuss some things she had not talked about.
After her presentation and questions, I was approached by a few students who told me what a great job Audrey did. Not only did she have to “wing it”, she knew what she was talking about and was composed in front a bunch of strangers. Then she was asked if she would be willing to share what she knows next May and August to two different groups!
My favorite part of the evening was when Audrey was asked if she had done any research on why monarch chrysalises have gold spots. Audrey answered without hesitation, “God put them there to show His glory in their beauty.” Excellent answer!
