GUTEN MORGEN FOUNDATION in collaboaration with TEIMAN WISDOM ACADEMY is here once again this time around, we had our career day here in TEIMAN WISDOM ACADEMY.
Career Day has become an annual tradition at TEIMAN WISDOM ACADEMY. This day provides students with a dynamic and tangible experience that facilitates a connection between their academic pursuits and professional endeavors in the future. Additionally, Career Day provides a platform to develop meaningful and personal connections between our students, alumni, parents and friends. Career Day is one way that The Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning encourages students to explore their interests and passions as an extension of their academic program and in the process better understand themselves, their community, and the world.
Many kids grow up wanting to be a super hero, a supermodel, a professional athlete or a princess. When most kids reach high school and college, though, they realize those careers are unfortunately probably out of their reach. A career day can help students find a profession that suits them. Different age groups will have different objectives during the event.
Today, students have great opportunities to help them figure out the answer to the big question asked over and over again: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Career days can help students as young as elementary school start thinking more in depth about what they want to do as adults. There are numerous benefits to having career-focused programs in schools to prepare students for their futures with the hope that perhaps their road to a career will be a bit easier.
Career days give students an up-close-and-personal view of an array of occupations, especially ones they have never heard of. It can broaden their perspectives beyond classic, familiar jobs such as teacher or firefighter. They also can learn what skills and education are required for the industries and fields they have interest in and potential aptitude for and have the opportunity to ask questions.
A successful career day gives students examples of the many ways what they are learning in school can relate to educational and career opportunities in the future. Even more, it gets students excited. Education World, a free online resource for educators and parents, reports that during career days, “The speakers often showed how the hobbies and goals of the elementary students are being used in the workforce, which energized the children and made them feel both validated and valuable.”
It’s a short step from elementary school to high school. When students start honing their skills and aspirations at an early age, their career path can transition from a bumpy road to an easy cruise.
