The PTO Presents 2020 Virtual Career Day

What shoes do you want to wear when you grow up?  To find a career that’s right for you, a good place to start is to think about your interests. Do you love cooking? Maybe you could be a chef? Do you love to problem solve? How about a detective.  Or maybe you love animals and want to be a zookeeper?

 We’ve prepared some videos to help you explore some careers you may want to work towards. And remember, you can be anything you want to be with hard work and passion!
