Recently, students in Mr. Finchum’s 8th grade class at Woodland Elementary School successfully completed a nine-week program in Self-Advocacy.
Students were taught step-by-step actions required to make important decisions, explore and begin making a plan toward future educational and professional goals.
Students were taught how to develop a personal resume for future part-time job opportunities.
Thanks to Tim Howell, the CEO of the Senior Citizens Home Assistance Service Inc. of Knoxville, for discussing opportunities available in the Home Health Care field.
Also thanks to the University of Tennessee for providing the training guide for the implementation of our self-advocacy classes.
