CareerConnect Round Up – Student Elevator Speeches
Presenting yourself is not just a Patriot Power, it’s one of the most important skills that our students need to acquire, helping them with everything from class presentations to job interviews. To give students practice presenting themselves professionally and confidently, GWHS CareerConnect has made the student elevator speech a priority. Every Friday, one student in each CareerConnect class presents their personal brand to their classmates. Our first participants came from Mr. Barotz’s Business Classes, where they spoke about the importance of preparation, confidence, eye contact, and teamwork, whether in the job or on the field. We are thrilled with this new bite-sized instructional practice that will absolutely pay huge dividends in the success of our students!
