Matt Moore: Next Steps Classes

14. January 2013 14:54

            This semester I like my Next Steps classes. I’m in Career Technology, Independent Living, and Self-Awareness.

            In Career Tech, I learn about applications for finding jobs. I also made a resume in class. I put on my resume information about my internships, summer camps, my Vanderbilt classes, and references. All of this also goes on my ePortfolio. An ePortolio includes skills and tasks, volunteering, my biography, and contact information.

            In Independent Living we learn about budgets and saving money. It’s important to keep money in the bank. I do a budget myself with my pay. We also learn about the difference in income and expense which is money in and money out.

            In Self-Awareness we learn about dreams and goals. Making goals is important because it helps decide the activities you will do. My goal this semester is to learn to use Facebook (log on, add new friends, write on my wall, etc.)

            I like my Next Steps classes this semester because they challenge me to learn. I’m still learning in the class. By the end of the semester, I hope to learn more about jobs, careers, and my own strengths and weaknesses. I really like this program. This program changed my life as a student.
