Career Resource Center

Career Resources Coordination

At the beginning of this calendar year, we have had the opportunity to strengthen the services and support we are able to offer our high school students for their plans after graduating from High School. I have the pleasure of being asked to coordinate this effort and am designing and developing a “Career Center” that is largely digital and of service to students looking at next steps. Within the school, I am a source for information, resources, and access to colleges, universities, service opportunities, financial aid and more.

I will be working directly with high school students both individually and in groups. I am also coordinating visits and informational sessions with universities for students and families. In the near future, I hope to be holding workshops and informational sessions for your family in person. Currently I am housed in the Curie High School area and am available for individual student or family sessions afterschool between 1:30-3:30 should you like to meet.

I will be sharing opportunities through weekly messages and look forward to supporting your family in future plans for your child.
