I'm a speaker, what do I need to do?

Just show up at 9:30am on June 17 and be prepared to share your professional story. You will have about 15 minutes to speak and about 5 minutes for student questions.

When I arrive at SME what do I do first?

Upon arrival to our school, you will need to sign in at the front desk. Then you will receive a visitors sticker. Once you're signed in, a Student Liaison will greet you and guide you to the MPR where you will pick up your schedule and a map of our campus.

How do I know which classes to visit?

You will be given a schedule when you arrive at SME. Your schedule will include a map but don't worry - your Student Liaison will be there to help you find your way around.

How many classes will I speak to?

You will be scheduled to speak to 3 different classes with a short break in between each speaking session.

How old are these students?

Our school has grades Kindergarten through 5th grade but you will likely be speaking to a 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th grade class.

Can I bring any props or a co speaker?

Absolutely! Career Day is more fun when you share your speaking time with a coworker and props such as pictures, equipment or uniforms help bring your presentation to life.

What kind of technology will be available to me when I speak?

All of our classrooms have overhead projectors that connect to a desktop PC. We also have a document camera in each room. Feel free to bring your print outs,PowerPoint, Google doc, USB, video link or any other technology you feel will enhance your speaking session. We can even help you set up!

(If you're old school and just want to use the whiteboard or chart paper, we've got that covered as well.)

Can I choose a class or grade to speak to?

Do you know a student or teacher here at SME? Do you feel like your professional story will connect with a certain grade or age? No worries - just send me an email and let me know. I will do my best to match you up with the right class or age group.

Anything else I should know?

One way to make your speaking session engaging is to involve the students. Asking questions about their lives, a well timed joke or heartfelt story - anything that helps you establish a rapport - can go a long way to making your speaking session memorable.

I still have questions - who can I talk to?
