YEAH!!!!!!!!

Exciting Laura. Makes me so excited!

I am sorry i didnt make it on time. But honored to be invited. Long day at work.

I met a great group of students at lunch today for BEHS career day! We discussed careers in the law, held a mock trial, deliberated on a verdict, touched on constitutional rights, and had a Q&A.

For two class periods, the entire high school is converted into career day sessions. Students then choose which to attend. I love that kids are given these opportunities to meet people from different fields and explore a wide range of career options.
