The month of January marks the beginning of a new calendar year and the midpoint of the current school year. Students not only think about resolutions for a new year, but are also encouraged to re-visit their goals for a successful school year. Students are also beginning the process of planning for the next academic year as secondary schools begin the scheduling process. This is a great time for teachers and counselors to talk with students about their career interests so that academic planning can reflect those interests and students can make decisions based on those interests and future goals.
