All throughout the month of March, students of guidance counselor Tiffany Bettingers College and Career Planning class have been going to LMIS and EMMS to give presentations about future careers to the intermediate and middle school students. It appears to have done some good for b

I think the students learned a lot from the presentations, said teacher and guidance counselor Tiffany Bettinger. They were so engaged and excited about the presentations. Not only did they [intermediate and middle school students] learn, but many [JGHS] students learned from the experience as well.

Students prepared for these presentations by researching and looking up details on their careers. They went to the schools, and each group presented their career to the knowledge-hungry students.

Bettinger was overjoyed with the way her students performed. I am proud of their maturity and professionalism, said Bettinger, especially since their audience looks up to them as role models.

Overall, the presentations were success and will be continued in upcoming years. Yes, I would like to do this assignment in future years, said Bettinger. I would love to expand it to the elementary schools!

Later this week, the College and Career Planning class will be giving their presentations to special education teacher Rhonda Carleys students here at John Glenn High School.
