To meet the district goal of creating a comprehensive career curriculum for senior kindergarteners through twelfth graders, Lisa Rierdon is using a $900 EFW grant to focus on all Wauwatosa elementary school students. Through the use of career books the counseling staff will be able to differentiate lessons, connect with students while instructing them on career pathways and support the district literacy goal.
Titles such as: “Children’s Dictionary of Occupations”, “When I Grow Up”, “Whose Hat Is This?”, and “When I Grow Up” have been purchased. With the addition of these books all students at each elementary building have access to career books. This connects with the district counseling program goal and district goal to reach every student, be comprehensive in scope, preventative in design and developmental in nature.
