English Class Presentations
Ashley Campbell & Griffin Probst demonstrate how an IV catheter is inserted.
Both students are enrolled in the Small Animal Care program.
Students in Mrs. Tiffanee Warner’s English classes are combining their presentation and organizational skills with their career-technical knowledge. Students worked in pairs to demonstrate and explain what they are learning in their career-technical program to their classmates.

“Every lab has a surprise,” says English teacher Mrs. Warner. That’s what students learn when they see the career presentation projects from their classmates. “One of my favorite things is to watch their faces to see their reaction. They see how what others are learning is applicable to the real world.”

“It’s nice to see others learning about what we do. It’s a different view for them,” said Griffin Probst, a senior in the Small Animal Care program. 

“It’s really interesting to see what others are learning,” added Ashley Campbell, who partnered with Probst on the project.
