Day 29: Where Are They Now?

Screen shot 2013-10-01 at 8.58.28 AM

Stealing a great idea from our business ed teacher, I am working on a display of former students who have gone on to careers in STEM fields. We too often lose track of these students and forget that they go on to do amazing things. Given the reach of social media, I am using Facebook and Twitter to spread the word. We have always wanted to do something like this as a department to show the current students what is possible: vet tech, quality control chemist for a cement company, professor of chemistry, eye surgeon, neuropsychologist, coastal ecologist, you name it!

  1. I’ve had a great time finding out where my former students ended up….many of them have even agreed to be “guest speakers” or Skype contacts for my classes. Every day I find a current student checking out my former students on my bulletin board.
