Welcome To Mrs. Pegg's Website

Skills for Success and Careers is a project-based elective that teaches students skills that will allow students to become confident and respectful young adults. Skills for Success and Careers is a semester-long class that focuses on overcoming obstacles and focusing on what you can do. Through this course, we are working on gaining confidence, developing a positive attitude, and understanding and showing respect. In this class, we learn conflict resolution skills and problem-solving skills. The rest of the course is exploring careers and financial literacy. Students are able to discover and learn about many different careers and what the requirements are to become part of that career. Once we have explored our careers we move on to financial literacy and use one of the careers we like best to play a virtual Game of Life. This will reinforce important concepts such as financial independence, smart money choices, understanding loans, understanding how credit cards work, and how to keep a budget.
