Joan Shortall has been teaching in Florence District One since 2000. She loves watching her students put on their creative hats. She enjoys teaching students about careers and helping them to become employable.
This year she will be teaching twelfth graders Employability Skills class. Students are learning important living skills so they will be better prepared to work and live within our community. Since all students are equipped with a Chromebook this year we are able to share ideas, test and complete career and life activities alone, in small groups or with the whole class for any given assignment.
The spring semester is in full swing. Students are earning their community based training hours. They will be completing job applications and updating/creating resumes. Also, the students are concentrating on interview and job skills so they are prepared for transition after high school. A few already have jobs and we are helping them to stay successful on the job.
