TIPS (Technology In Practice Specialist)
Fostering a climate of lifelong learning and an acceptance of failure and change, along with the highly sought-after skills of collaboration, communication, innovation, and problem solving are the skills we can offer our students to lead them toward success in the global workplace.
Eighth Grade Science, High School Spanish, Paradise Valley Unified School District
I can help them succeed in the workplace by making them think, problem solve and troubleshoot through their challenges.
K-12 Technology Integration, Saddle Mountain Unified School District
I think the biggest thing we can do to prepare our students for the workplace is to teach them how to think critically as part of a team.
Seventh/Eighth Grade Computers, Cartwright School District
I help my students succeed in the workplace by providing an environment where the expectations are high for independent learning. I provide the foundation skills for each new technique, then students are expected to demonstrate their learning through projects. Students can ask each other for help, mimicking a real workplace where colleagues cooperate and help each other. But students are not allowed to take over projects, they can only help through verbal instruction. We discuss what deadlines mean in a workplace and how to work through confusion regarding project requirements. I also hold them to the deadlines given, so they are beginning to understand how to use their independent time wisely.

Assistive Technology Specialist, Kyrene School District
Provide them with the often-overlooked social skills needed to succeed. As a special education teacher, many of my students need instruction in this area. Social skills are crucial to success in the workplace.
High School Spanish, Chandler Unified School District
Be realistic and honest; make your expectations non-negotiable. Students have to learn how to work with all different kinds of people. We must give them to opportunities to achieve together.
