As the Career Development Coordinator, I am responsible for coordinating career development services for all students in grades 6-8 and for establishing and maintaining business/education partnerships that support WCMS's mission and School Improvement Plans. My goal is to serve all students by building linkages with the school staff, business/industry representatives, parents, and civic and community organizations.
