Career Exploration

 

2019 Dream Career Contest Results!

We would like to say a big hearty thank you to all of the high school students and middle school students that shared their Dream Careers with us! Again this year, choosing the Winning and Honorable Mention entries was a very difficult task. As always, some entries brought a laugh, a smile and even a tear.

This competition was open to the middle school students as well as the high school students. There were many wonderful essays from the older students but we were pleasantly surprised at the number of middle school entries! We got “snowed under”.

We will be publishing these essays starting with this issue and continuing through the winter and into the spring editions. Along with the winners, watch for the Special Recognition essays. There were so many great entries! We will try to share as many as possible. Special Recognition essay writers will be sent an appreciation certificate from all of us here at Teaching Today WI.

Winning essays can be found on pages 10–16 of the Winter 2020, Volume 1 issue and in future issues of Teaching Today WI.

It is an honor to be able to share these dreams with you, our readers, and without further ado here they are:
