"You Got This" LMS!

LMS counselor Kelly Kelley and teacher Brian Luna took a group of students to Lubbock to attend "You Got This!" a seminar led by Alex Kajitani, California Teacher of the Year and youtube sensation known as the "Rappin' Mathematician." The seminar included tips for social situations that require meeting new people and social conduct in professional settings. Kajitana had students practice introducing themselves and using appropriate hand shake, eye contact, and speaking tone. Students also learned how to set short, mid-, and long-term goals and what steps were necessary for completing each goal. Finally, they discussed what dressing-for-success looks like. Boys were given free ties and were taught how to tie a four-in-hand knot, while girls were given a makeup kit and tutorial on how to apply makeup by pageant contestant Ms. Brownfield.
