DeZavala Elementary School celebrated Career Week by inviting a host of professionals to speak to students about the importance of performing well in school and having each professional to explain how a good education can lead students to a good career.
Firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical technicians joined forces to create the local Community Careers on Wheels. This collaboration allowed students to visit with first responders and to learn how specialized equipment saves lives.
The Career and Technical Education students from Channelview High School led special presentations that introduced students to career choices, and San Jacinto College representatives spoke to students about college and career opportunities during the mid-week Career Exploration Day.
The final day of Career Week presented an opportunity for third grade through fifth-grade students to receive a special visit from ABC13 Storm Tracker and Meteorologist Collin Myers. The presentation offered opportunities for students to learn about a career in meteorology and to get an up-close look at the famous Storm Tracker.
Principal Ruben Rodriguez stated: “Career Week is designed to introduce students to potential career options. Through the use of guest speakers, students can hear stories that will help them understand the path to potential.”
