High School teacher Elizabeth Wright shares why she continues to implement JA programs and expose her students to unique experiences and important skills that they cannot otherwise get in her classroom.
El Cajon Valley High School AVID teacher, Elizabeth Wright has been implementing JA programs in her classroom for over a decade, because she believes that programs that we offer expose students to experiences that they cannot get inside of the classroom.
The most recent program that Ms. Wright's students participated in was a Job Shadow at The UPS Store. Ms. Wright shared that the most important thing her students learned that day was that Fortune 500 companies, like the UPS Store, offer a wide variety of career opportunities that they were unaware of. Students were able to shadow employees in many different departments of the company, really opening their eyes to potential career opportunities they have based on their skills and interests.
