Stimson hosted Career Day recently, introducing different fields of work to our middle school students. Various employees from all lines of work came to talk to our students in Stimson’s library, sharing their backgrounds and how they got started working in their careers. Students had the opportunity to meet a court Judge, Automotive companies, representatives from Bait and Tackle, Contractors, Police Dog Trainers, employees from Estee Lauder, Furniture salespeople, a nanotechnology engineer, and Ms. Rattu from the U.S. Army. Students sat down with each employer as they shared their journey in choosing their career paths and students asked questions to gain more insight on the jobs they work hard at every day. It was a valuable learning experience for our middle school students as they learned about the many different job opportunities and take notice of which fields peek their own interests.

Thank you to all of our career presenters that shared their experiences with our students: Ms. Cioffi, Mr. Dowling, Mr. Martino, Mr. Pierantoni, Mr. Leaver, Ms. Rattu, Mr. Camacho, Mr. Avella, Mr. Loomis, Mr. Leaver, Ms. Dearborn, and Mr. Tavera.
