Students enrolled in Ms. Crystal Vetrano’s Health Education classes at William Floyd Middle School recently completed an assignment where they had to research jobs in the health and wellness field that they might be interested in pursuing as future careers.
“There are so many great and rewarding careers in the health and wellness field,” said Ms. Vetrano. “During this lesson we discussed that when deciding on a career, students should consider what they enjoy doing, what pays a comfortable salary, available benefits and the type of education needed.”
Some of the career and job occupations that the students chose to delve into included anesthesiologist, dental hygienist, geneticist, neurosurgeon, physician’s assistant, x-ray technician and more.
“With this project, I wanted my students to understand that a college education is important in order to attain a career that is both enjoyable and profitable,” said Ms. Vetrano. “Through their research, they discovered the direct correlation between higher-level degrees and higher salaries.”
