OLD TOWN – That’s what students were doing today at Old Town Elementary School.
The school kicked off its annual Career Day where students learned about different jobs available to them. Each class spent up to thirty minutes hearing from up to five job specialist.
Even our own ABC 7 and Fox 22 morning news anchor, Laura Smith, made a visit, showing how we, as journalist, do our job on a daily basis.
Fourth grade teacher, Brenda Jackson, says the kids saw it all, “We had so many people that came in to talk to the children about all of their careers, they were so enthusiastic. The children enjoyed asking questions, getting them answers, seeing what they do, how they got to their career which was really important and i think its inspired the children to move forward in their careers in their own mind”
Some students themselves were inspiring – pushing their own classmates to work hard.”If you like something, and you think you can’t do it, don’t give up. Keep trying until you get it right” Abby Swedberg, Fourth Grade Student, Old Town Elementary
From veterinarian’s, Game Warden’s bringing a helicopter, fire fighters, to police, there was a lot to learn and fun involved.
