Classy and Fabulous; A Career Path in the Beauty Business
Help me give my students nail products to address their interest in a future cosmetology career. This is an after school activity for young ladies that will teach them self-esteem and a possible future career.
My school district serves a huge Latino population in the Indianapolis area. Most of my students are from low-income families. Every year we welcome new immigrant families to our district, mainly from Central America. The school has a Spanish Immersion Program with a component of biliteracy (English-Spanish) where students of different ethnicities collaborate in the acquisition of a second language.
Many of my American born students are learning Spanish while all my Latino students are learning English.
Our school has a one-to-one device-to-student program, and the students are well-trained in the use of that equipment.
Many of my girl students aren't doing well at school because of a lack of motivation. These girls are growing up and becoming teenagers. This is the time where the self-awareness process is relevant for them to see who they are and what they want to become. I have noticed the importance that they put on their looks, and nails are one of the few body parts that they can show-off at school.
These nails product would allow them to practice a skill that has the potential of becoming a future career.
Many of them have expressed their interest in a cosmetology career, so it is important for us as educators to address that interest and promote a possible path to an honest way to earn a living.
