Unlikely Guests at the P.S. 15 Career Day - VIDEO

On Monday, May 12, P.S. 15 opened its classrooms to producers, therapists, police officers, hotel managers, DJs, dentists and more. Each offered a glimpse into their professional lives and a future career for these young scholars.

By the end of the day, if you asked any student, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” they could only answer with a long, long list of options. It’s a credit to the fantastic speakers who inspired P.S. 15 students with their presentations. A top choice for nearly everyone: small animal handler and eco-educator. Many thanks to Jose Rodriguez and his friends from Fauna for sharing his work with us!

When asked why he signed up to volunteer at Career Day, Jose said, “Bringing the animals to teach brings joy and gets the kids to ask good questions. And I believe it is really important to encourage kids to find work that they really love, and work that’s worthwhile.” Check out these 3rd grader’s responses to Jose’s presentation!
