Look out RIT there is a new school out there!

I was asked to be a guest lecturer at this school specifically designed for the OPS. The faculty looked long and hard to find someone with a knowledge level appropriate for their students. They came to the conclusion that I was just the scholar for them! As guest lecturer, I was provided a vehicle and my own parking space!  
During the introductions, the director of the program explained where I was from. 
After the director spoke, I worked with the entire student body in this large lecture hall!  

In this break out session I had the students listening to my every word!  
Students posed for this class photo the day before St Patrick‚Äôs Day wearing their hats in my honor!  
My son Ryan is a Kindergarten teacher at a school that just so happens to go by OPS. On a trip to visit my son and his family, I had the opportunity to sit in on his class to see the day of a kindergarten teacher. The students were very curious as to who the "old guy" was in their classroom they brought books for me to read to them.
