Career day at HTHNC is where students have an opportunity to visit a career of their interest. The purpose is for students to get familiar with the career that their interested in or to see if it truly is the right career for them. I went to visit my old elementary school and shadowed my fith grade teacher to see how she is able to manage a young crowd. Describe a typical work day at this site. A typical work day usually consists of steering kids in the right direction, being able to get their attention, making sure they are learning, and having a lot of patience. At work you are expected to show up on time, to be in appropriate attire, respect personal property, and to set a good example in front of the children. Several activities that the staff do are sat up events for the kids and for their families. At High Tech I have sharped my public speaking skills and will apply this to any profession I take in. She had to take a lot of classes in mathematics and literature to meet the requirements needed to be a teacher. I really learned that kids are a handful and require a lot of patience. I learned that it is a lot of work and that there is no room for slacking off in the professional world. Is this a career you are interested in pursuing? Why/why not? I am not pursuing this profession but it was good to see how to manage a crowed of people first hand. Next year I would defiantly take some time to see what I truly want to do and ask around to see if any of my peers have any connections that can help purse my dream. Here are some questions that I asked during career day. What is the most challenging part of the job? " The hardest part definitely has to be making sure that the kids are learning and paying attention, otherwise I have to repeat myself and they will start to loose interest." What gets you through the day. " My coffee." What do you do when the class or a student become disruptive? " If you start to build a personal connection with them and get to know them in the inside. It's easier for them to tone it down because they start to respect you."
