Student Testimonials
I have been in the health Occupations classes for two years now. From my experiences, I have learned that I wanted to become a physical therapist. I have been on a couple of job shadows before but I never really knew what happened in emergency rooms and clinics. When I finally got the chance to go on a job shadow to a local physical therapy clinic, I found that I really enjoyed seeing what a physical therapist does. I used to want to be a surgeon but since I didn’t get to a chance to job shadow a surgeon, I changed my career path. Job shadows have a major impact on me so I know what to expect, and what there is to do.

Employer Testimonials
It has been such a pleasure for me to have the opportunity to mentor these young ladies from Barbara Roberts. I have been so impressed, as I have gotten to know the girls, at their determination to succeed against difficult odds. I sincerely hope that whatever contribution that we are able to make will help them achieve the goals that they have set for their futures.

Career Exploration Resources

Resources to assist with exploring possible careers, employment trends and salaries have been added to the site.

In partnership with the Ready to Learn Ready to Work Program Claggett Creek Middle School hosted their 2nd Annual Career Day in January 2014.  300 8th graders had a choice between 30 different career options and heard from professionals from the top 4 careers they selected.  Students completed written reflections regarding the day and below are some great comments and feedback about their experiences.

Claggett Creek Middle School Career Day Student Comments;

“I now think I want to be a General Surgeon or a Paramedic.  I learned about the Explorers Program where you can do a ride along and get training in the field when you turn 14. I am going to sign up today!”

“The thing that stood out to me the most was the social worker because she has a hard job.  She works with people that have fallen on hard times.  I would like to make an impact on families like she does.”

“Before today I did not know what I wanted to do.  Now I know I want to go into law enforcement.  I learned a lot about a typical day in the life of a sheriff and how they help people.”

“I really liked career day.  I learned how to stay fit and live a healthy lifestyle.  I also decided I wanted to be a fitness coach.  I hope I get another chance for a career day.  Thank you.”

“Today I walked into these classes thinking, why did I pick this and walked out thinking I wanted to do all four careers!  I learned that I can do anything if I keep my grades up and work hard.”
