My Students

I work in a lower social economic district. When I ask the students what would make their experience in my classroom better they always say going on field trips. In the current economic climate, taking large numbers of students on field trips is not feasible.

Many of these students enroll in my classes because they see a way to move forward, have a better life and also give back to the community.

This is pretty amazing considering some of the things they have seen and experienced in their young lives.

My Project

My students are enrolled in the career and technical education field of law and public safety. Many want to pursue a career in law enforcement or another of the fields in the criminal justice system.

Field trips to actual locations give students a real world view of what the career options are all about.

Some may have been visitors to the location while others only experience is what they see on TV. This field trip will show them what it is really like to be a corrections officer.

While you may be wondering, how this relates to law enforcement, it provides a pathway to get there. Most police agencies require applicants to be 21 years old. What does an 18-year-old high school graduate do between graduation night and turning 21? The sheriff's department hires 18 year old high school graduates to work in corrections at the jail. When they turn 21, they have the opportunity to transition to deputy. In those 3 years, they have been developing skills to take them forward while also having the opportunity to acquire college credits.

It is a win win opportunity.
