Follow Your Dreams!

Ms. Ileana and students at DES engaged in a lighthearted and fun exercise where they discussed dreams and ambitions. It is important to stress that most people have dreams and ambitions, especially when discussing them with younger students.

Students worked with Ms. Ileana and were asked to identify a particular ambition or dream in an occupational context and further helped them gain insight on identifying achievable and realistic dreams. Ms. Ileana worked with students to brainstorm reasons for [...]
