Well, what I've found out in my career is that by posting "classroom jobs" in the beginning of the year (and at the end of each quarter), it allows you to really have a good discussion with each student about what their qualifications are for that particular job or jobs that they are applying for.
You then can use that information to help them become a responsible classroom citizen for whatever job or jobs that you hire them for. Usually, the jobs that they interview for are the ones that they end up being hired for anyway, and you can then set them up in their strength zone to succeed. Then, you'll naturally have a good relationship with them.
Put yourself in their shoes… wouldn't you want someone to do that for you?
I read an article recently, where there was a study done about what percentage of adults are happy in their profession, and it was something like 30 percent.
That's 7 out of 10 people that are NOT happy with what they do EVERY day.
As educators, we have a responsibility to help that number significantly. Isn't that what we really are supposed to be doing, anyways? By providing them with the skills that they need, they will be proficient in their job. However, if they're not even happy in their job, then what's the point?
That's where our program comes in, and it helps not only you as an educator, but also the students find out what they really want to do in their life.
How powerful is that?
