Mrs. Thorpe, secretary at RDW, recently opened her own floral shop called “For the Birds: Floral and Gifts.” She spoke to second and fifth grade students about her experience of starting a business from scratch. She shared her exciting progress as well as the difficulties of being an entrepreneur (e.g. you don’t make much money in the beginning, you have no “sick” days, if there’s any problems you have to solve them on your own). Students also watched how a floral arrangement is created from start (flowers in boxes) to finish. They even got to take some flowers home!
Thank you Mrs. Thorpe for sharing your experience with our students!
