Career ready students speak with job professionals on achieving your dreams
Kids always say when I grow up, I want to be a teacher, doctor and many other careers. To help students achieve their dream careers, Lincoln Elementary hosted a Career Day to get students ready for their dream jobs.
The gym of Lincoln Elementary was full of eager kids ready to learn about the different careers. Today, their School Secretary Kacey Sell talked to them about her career at the school. For these students that attended, they said they learned a lot.
“Being a principal helper is a part of helping your principal,” said Tre, 4th Grader Interested in the NBA. “You have to do so many tasks to help a lot of kids.”
The career speaker helps students be aware of job opportunities in the world while keeping them focused on the goals they want to achieve. For one of the students, she said the job of a School Secretary sounds pretty hard.
“Being a secretary is a little hard and you have to have to go through a lot of steps to get there,” said Carson, 4th Grader Interested in the Army.
Sell’s told the students she went to Western Nebraska Community College for her degree and says you need to stay updated in technology for many careers.
“Being a secretary, you need to know how to use technology and you need to be able to help kids,” said Cara, 4th Grader Interested in Teaching.
The students didn’t just learn about the job itself. They learned about characteristics they need to have for any job especially their dream careers.
“You have to be responsible to be one and be nice to each other,” said Ryder, 4th Grader Interested in SWAT.
The students say they feel more career ready and are happy to be exposed by the different opportunities within the area.
The students of Lincoln Elementary receive a guest career speaker every Tuesday.
