3rd - 5th Grade

Career Exploration!

For the next several weeks, 3rd-5th grade will be diving into all things career related in counseling class! We will focus on our individualstrengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, desires, goal setting techniques, and various other aspects related to career exploration. It's sure to be an exciting series for our kiddos! I'm working hard to include media, interactive and reflective activities, art projects, and TONS of fun. :) My personal goal is to have each student dreaming big about their future and cherishing their strengths that will hopefully drive them to a career that will bring them satisfaction and joy.

Career Paths

During our lessons, we will be learning more about the 6 career paths designated by the Missouri Department of Education through the Missouri Connections Program (description of Missouri Connections below). Take some time and look over the flyer with your student! This is a great tool to start discussions about what interests your child and begin to get them interested in the career or careers that they find interesting.
