Holding Back to Mak Space

Today my students did a superb job of presenting a In-House Promotions event in our school gallery. It was all I could do to hold back and not get involved with the day-of event production. I'm use to being the person who makes it all happen, so that the client and guests can fully enjoy themselves.

Instead I stood back, leaned against a table and clasped my hands. It was confusing since I felt like a bad apple. But really I was making room for them to own the event. I do not need to prove that I know how to put on a production, my job was to create an environment that allows them to learn, evolve and excell. They did just that. I had goosebumps and a broad smile from start to finish.
