Students in the Fulda High School ninth grade Family and Consumer Science Class are receiving some additional lessons about Career Success through a Murray County Junior Achievement class taught by Todd Lee.

During Thursday’s class, the first of seven sessions, the students learned about Career Success creativity and critical thinking.

Friday’s lesson was about work place communications with part of the classroom time focusing on conflict resolutions. Three scenarios were practiced by students. For each scenario, Junior Achievement teacher, Todd Lee, and class room teacher, Marcine Elder, coached the students as they thought about alternative ways to handle the conflict - resulting in a workable solution for both manager and worker.

In the upcoming sessions, students will learn about work place collaboration, knowiing work priorities, being alert as to who is hiring and what are high growth jobs, as well as knowing what their personal brand is for job hunting.

Lee has been a teacher with Murray County Junior Achievement for five years. “I teach Junior Achievement just for the enjoyment of teaching something that isn’t standard school curriculum,” he stated. “This course teaches more life examples. It works very well for someone who has seen these examples in our life or jobs to help students understand and realize what needs to be involved for a successful career in the work place.”

“It’s great to have outside people who assist with teaching the Junior Achievement Curriculum,” Marcine Elder stated. “This class is the Foods, Nutrition and Leadership Class which learning about careers falls into that category. A lot can be learned by the students from someone who works in a career in a work place such as First National Bank. We’re just grateful that Mr. Lee is able to come and teach the Junior Achievement Careers Success course.”
