Students at Bemiss Elementary had the opportunity to explore what they want to be when they grow up. Bemiss hosted their first career fair and all students from kindergarten to sixth grade got to learn about careers ranging from EMT to geologist.
Each age group spent a half hour today touring different booths set up and learned about different careers available to them. Kindergarten teacher, Brooke Miller, says they wanted the students to think beyond teacher and police officer and make connections with adults in careers they might not otherwise make.
Local buisiness such as STCU and Avista were there, along with nurses, day care teachers, a geologist, photograper, scientits, metoerolgist and a farmer. Each group created an interactive display for the kids to teach them about what their jobs entailed. Students came prepare with questions, asking what they liked about their jobs and what kind of training they needed.
