I also really enjoyed how my students got to research something that they are interested in and their presentations to the class were a huge success. They are required to research and find a great amount of detail about the career of their choosing which I think was really great for them to develop these skills. “

I enjoyed the easy to use layout and found that it gave me great insights into my student’s future plans and helped them to better understand their goals. As we did this during distance learning, the oral part was a personally recorded video that they submitted.”
