Kirsten Keach, career-awareness coordinator at St. Johnsbury Academy, has been visiting 6th-, 7th- and 8th-grade classrooms at The St. Johnsbury School, Barnet School, Monroe Consolidated School and Good Shepherd Catholic School in St. Johnsbury.

The St. Johnsbury Academy Career Awareness Program of the Career and Technical Education Department is giving elementary and middle-school-age students in the St. Johnsbury area an opportunity to think about possible careers before they enter high school.

After outreach and preparation last spring, the program kicked off in in the 2011-2012 school year as Kirsten Keach, career-awareness coordinator at the Academy, began visiting 6th-, 7th- and 8th-grade classrooms at The St. Johnsbury School, Barnet School, Monroe Consolidated School and Good Shepherd Catholic School in St. Johnsbury. Keach has facilitated discussion of career interests and introduced students to the online Kuder Career Planning System. Through the Kuder system, students set up personal educational- and career-planning profiles that they can keep through life.
