Jobs in the Real World

Students brought home a career survey today. They are to interview an adult that is employed full time. Most were talking about interviewing their parents. Please take this opportunity to talk to your kids about the realities of the working world. Later this week, I will be showing students the ugly world of the adult finances. Why is it important to have a job with health insurance? How much money do you really take home after taxes? And what bills are reality when it comes to juggling your money? I think this will be an eye-opening experience for them. It shall be interesting!

Remember that conferences are Wednesday and Thursday. Further, Thursday and Friday are half days (for students, not us!) I look forward to seeing all of you this week.
