Hello class. It seems that I have been doing a lot of work on the computer these last few weeks. I have learned, though, that computer work is different for different types of jobs. The job I did this week allows people to connect when they otherwise could not. Mr. Hughes, Sam’s dad, taught me a lot!
Mr. Hughes is a virtual assistant. He provides a service. Mr. Hughes works for a man who helps people sell houses. That man lives in North Carolina, and Mr. Hughes lives in Colorado. Mr. Hughes works at his house. He uses his computer, calls people on the phone, and sends documents to banks. The headset on Thunder’s head is part of a phone. Mr. Hughes helps people in communities all over the United States, not just our community. He helps our community because with the money he makes, he buys goods and services from people in our community. Thunder and Mr. Hughes got to decide when they ate lunch and what time they stopped working that day. It was cool to be able to choose when they worked, but Mr. Hughes and Thunder had to get their work done before they played.
Until next week!
