Supporting PreK-12 Student Career Exploration

Career Day was one of my favorite days of school growing up! I had to wear a school uniform, but on Career Day you got to ditch the uniform and dress up as whatever you wanted to be when you grew up, and I always dressed up as the same thing: a teacher. Dressing up as the future occupation I wanted to go into at that time allowed me to dream and picture myself achieving that dream. While I may have shifted my career goals later in life, the benefits from learning about careers and strategies to achieve those goals at an early age remained. Megan Ortmeyer NOVEMBER 21, 2022
