Why I am Committed to WSST

Every student at WSST has the potential to be successful at the college and career of their choice. I am committed to exposing students and their families to all their post secondary options, and the career opportunities that are available to them. I am also a resource to help students and families navigate the complex world of junior high and high school.

Learning Experience that Changed Me

During my 4th year of teaching, a friend of mine asked me to speak to some school counselors about how career education programs, like business, helped prepare students for a successful transition to college. A week later I enrolled in my first course to complete my Masters of a Education in Counseling. I saw how passionate school counselors were, and knew that I could be that person for my students!
