Heather White is a middle school teacher at South Branch Career & Technical Center. As a teacher, she enjoys seeing students excited to come to class every day. Through the Career Exploration Lab, she feels that their passion for learning is reignited because of the hands-on learning opportunities. Further, the activities allow them to discover a variety of potential careers.
“As a former math teacher, I am most excited to show students how their work in their core classes will be utilized in real-world scenarios. These scenarios answer the question that so many students ask, ‘Why do I need to know this?’” said White.
