Eliza Groff, RGV LEAD Program Coordinator, would like to remind school districts to register for the Education & Career EXPO which is scheduled to be held virtually on October 27th and 28th, 2021. The live event will host business and industry panel presentations which will inform students on the courses, education, experience, etc. needed to pursue a career in specific fields.
Colleges and universities will present the fields of study offered at their institutions; as well as criteria needed for admission to the institutions.
The Education & Career EXPO is a valuable resource for classroom instruction especially because it meets the needs of the Texas Education Agency TEKS. One example is Chapter §127.14. Career Preparation I: (3) The student discusses work ethics, employer expectations, interactions with diverse populations, and communication skills in the workplace. The student is expected to: (B) research characteristics of successful working relationships such as teamwork, conflict resolution, self-control, and the ability to accept criticism.
As you can see, the EXPO is a great classroom resource for enriching students’ knowledge about college and careers. Contact Eliza Groff to register for this extraordinary event that promises to inspire students’ future decisions.
