Lincoln Prairie students explore options for their future at Middle Level Career Day

More than 30 parents, community members and other individuals in various career fields - including a firefighter, special events manager, attorney, journalist, pharmacist, scientist and professor - spent the morning of September 21 talking with sixth, seventh and eighth graders at Lincoln Prairie School's Middle Level Career Fair.

The volunteers spoke with students about their education, their personal strengths and the multiple intelligences that support them in their field. The students have been working to identify their strongest areas of intelligence, the careers that align with those intelligences, and the best colleges/universities from which to earn a degree in that field. Middle Level teacher Dan Levin, who led the planning of the Career Fair, said the students were encouraged to speak with professionals whose careers aligned with what the students thought they might want to do - but also to go outside their comfort zone and experience something new.
