Guest Speakers

Found in: classroom guests

Every week, I choose one of my students to bring in a guest speaker on Friday afternoon. The speakers are usually parents, grandparents or family friends and they speak about how school studies have helped them succeed in their job. We've had a nurse come in and speak about the importance of math in measuring medicine and an engineer who explained how math, art and design help him do his job. We've also had a lobbyist, newspaper worker, storeowner and even a chandelier designer explain the link between school and the real world. Some guests bring in a collection or a hobby and focus on how their schooling helped them in these endeavors. We follow up with huge thank you cards for the guests.
