Davis and McWhorter Elementary Schools Host Career Days for Students

Carrollton Farmers Branch ISD elementary schools recently hosted career days to introduce students to a variety of professions.


Davis Elementary School held its event on Friday, March 8th. Employers from across the Dallas-Fort Worth area visited the school, setting up in classrooms to educate students about different careers. Students even got into the spirit by dressing up as their dream jobs. Among those participating were Miss Texas 2018 Andrea Fox Downing, beekeepers, construction workers, lawyers, representatives from Carrollton's Sam Pack Ford dealership and more.

McWhorter Elementary’s career day, held on Wednesday, March 27th, was set up in a more traditional job fair format. Employers lined the gymnasium, allowing students to rotate through tables and learn about different professions. Nurses, physical therapists, firefighters, entrepreneurs and more set up booths to interact with the students. Also on hand were representatives of CFBISD's Academy of Future Teachers and the technology department. 

These events provide students with valuable exposure to a wide range of careers at an early age. By interacting with professionals and learning about different fields, students can begin to develop their interests and gain a better understanding of the skills and education needed for various career paths. This early exposure can spark curiosity, ignite passions and help students dream big about their futures.

CFBISD strives to prepare all students to be college, career or military ready by the time they graduate high school. The College Career and Military Readiness department provides information and resources to help students and their families learn about future pathways. Information is available for all grade-levels K-12. To learn more, please visit the CCMR website.
