Hi, my name is Christion and this is sadly my last week as Nashville Community Education’s high school intern. This was my first job and I want to give some insight into my experience. Week 1 I was with Joshua learning to send invoices, register people for classes and take calls. I have to be completely honest with y’all taking calls is not my strong suit, but I do like opening classrooms and making signs. The second week I worked with Imelda. She handles most of the finances and schedules classes. I made my first deposit by myself and helped make the Fall schedule.
Week 3 I worked with Mary Beth on a social media takeover.I interviewed Dr. Archie for The Juicing for Meat Lovers class July 31. News Channel 5 came to Nashville Community Education to interview Mr. Whitsett on his Tai Chi class. I got to be behind the scenes on a live taping and take pictures. There was also pizza party for the interns where we talked and played games.
I really also enjoyed things like feeding the birds and looking at the garden for our classes with UT/TSU Extension. I want to thank my supervisors for being so kind and patient. I also want to thank them for the coffee, ice-cream, tea, bagels and lunches once a week. Let’s not forget the chocolate! Big shout out to Nashville Community Education for this opportunity and pushing me to improve my skills!
