Teachers, parents, and the community at large have a pivotal role as role models aiding in helping students discover their interests, aptitudes, and dispositions.
Teachers relate what they teach to occupational choices in the work world. Students look to teachers as career educators. When teachers relate content curriculum to occupations and real-life examples, it connects the student to the relationship between learning and earning.
Career education shapes our students to help them lead productive, self-sustaining, and satisfying lives. Students with increased self-awareness can recognize they have the potential to develop the skills necessary to realize their full potential.
