It's Never too Early to Plan Your Future

What do you want to be when you grow up? Some of us spend our lives pondering that very question and others have just always known the answer. It is never too early to begin to explore, talk to adults in the workforce and do some research. College and Career Week, celebrated in Plano ISD in January, is not just about wearing hats and college spirit wear. It is a week of serious learning about growing up. What do I need to do to become a college student, a fireman, a police officer, a welder or a teacher? Where would I go to college? Could I go to college? How do I get a job? Parents, businesses professionals, college representatives and community members took time in their busy schedules to speak to students about educational opportunities and careers. At Mathews and Daffron Elementary Schools, students had the opportunity to speak with actual college students via Skype and/or a live panel discussion. Teachers and counselors helped students explore their future opportunities with art, writing, research projects and fun, keeping the door open to big dreams. See the photo gallery.
