CSI Helps Students Uncover Career Aspirations

Crime Scene Investigator Trevor Holt visited Miss Schooler's English 3 class to discuss his career and how to reach one's goals. The class is working on a unit called "Reaching Our Goals", in which they research their individual career goals, write cover letters and resumes, practice interviewing skills, and invite members of the community to address the class. Student Faith Jenkins invited a CCSI (certified crime scene investigator), and the whole class benefited from Holt's wisdom, truth, and humor.
