This is a class module that I taught for several years in a men's minimum security prison as they prepared to transition back to civilian life. Most were extremely thankful for the class and felt more confident after attending it. It is just as important for anyone seeking employment. Getting and keeping a job is vital to a more productive life. It is vital to life in general. It is a class that I feel very strongly about when it comes to preparing a student for adult life and careers. I wish I had had a similar class when I was young.
There is no homework in this class, though learners may want to look up some provided resources/websites
The only required supplies to bring to this class is a smile and respect. When seeking a job and obtaining employment, respect and smiles are a big part of the process. This class is a good starting place.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This class does not do assessments.  It is purely an informative class that is given to assist students with filling out applications.  Keep in mind, this class will be helpful in filling out not only job applications, but any type of application.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There is nothing that requires Parental Guidance in this class.  Any parent or guardian is welcome to listen in but must stay off-camera.

About Me

Hello!
I've had a past full of different types of working, learning and teaching and I've loved it all. I feel lucky that I've experienced so much and I want to pass that learning on to others.

I believe children should be allowed to be children....
