Students have a difficult choice to make after high school which is what they want to major in at college.
There are many different ways to prepare for a future career after figuring out what major to pick at college. Biology and Forensics teacher Kevin Glatt has some tips on how to prepare for the career that interests students most.
“In high school, I always knew that I really liked science and I would love to have a job that involves science. So, every year of high school, I would make sure to take a science course,” said Glatt.
Glatt explained how every year of high school, he thought it was very important for him to be in a science class. It didn’t matter if it was biology or chemistry, as long as it involved some type of science. His love for science started in middle school. Glatt started to notice that it was one of his favorite classes and was always very excited to go to his science class. It was when he was in his senior year of high school he chose to pick a science and education major.
“I majored in biology education which was a dual major for biology and also for me to get my teaching credential,” said Glatt.
Glatt always knew that he was really good at science; however, some of his friends were struggling in that class, so he decided to help them with a work-study program. He would tutor them so that they would be able to pass the class. Once he realized that he was good at explaining the material to his friend he noticed that he would like to teach other people about science.
“I ended up enjoying and [getting] a lot of satisfaction from sharing my knowledge and helping others,” said Glatt.
There are many different ways that students can prepare for their careers in a science field. Students that are interested in taking a science course like Glatt did, should try taking a science class every year to make sure they understand everything they are learning about. They can also do extracurriculars outside of school that involve their interests and passions to help them get ready for their future career. One thing that could be helpful is volunteering at science workshops, in coding, or even in a robotics club.
