Aurora Sentinel: Teaching Work is no Easy Job

Story excerpt:

"For the past four years, Aurora Public Schools has used its interactive Career Trek to give eighth graders throughout the district a chance to learn about the vast array of careers available to them. Students during the most recent event on Sept. 29 not only had a chance to pursue careers ranging from tattoo artist to police officer, but they learned what type of education they’d need to have to be able to achieve that job and just how much they might be able to make.

'This is such a great idea to have hands on activities because it makes it more relevant for the students,' said Charles Dukes, APS’ director of college and career success. 'Students can check out different careers and see what skills they need to focus on as they go through school.'"
