Career Day was a Success!

Career Day was a Success!

Career day was a lot of fun!  We heard many different career volunteers.  Grades K-2 heard from Richmond Firefighter, Henrico Police, Dog trainers, veterinarian, Richmond Ballet, plush toy makers, karate and gymnastics instructors.

Grades 3-5 heard from Jon Burkett, Channel 6 news reporter, dentist, animator, animal rescue league, scientist, real estate agent and Richmond Kickers Pro Soccer Player.  All grades were allowed to dress up as the job they would like to have when they group up…and everyone looked great!  I hope your child(ren) came home and shared with you all about career day.  Below are some pictures from our career day.

About Jennifer D. Woody

Hello! I am the part-time school counselor at Echo Lake this year along with full-time counselor, Julie Williams. I am from East Tennesse. I have my undergraduate degree in psychology from Mars Hill University (near Asheville, NC) and my graduate degree in counseling education from VCU. I have been in Richmond since 1999 and I have seven years experience as a school counselor. I spent one year at Longan Elementary and six years at Johnson Elementary both in Henrico County. I have three children and have been a stay-at-home mom for the past five years. My children are all elementary age; 3rd grade, 1st grade and Kindergarten and now is the time to return to what I love doing by easing in as a part-time counselor. I look forward to getting to know staff, students, and Echo Lake families. This is a wonderful school and community! I am at Echo Lake part-time. I am here full day on Tuesdays and Thursdays and half day on Fridays. I have started classroom guidance lessons in Kindergarten and Ist grade classes. We are learning how to be good students by listening carefully, always working hard and paying attention. I am the contact person for the International Baccalaureate Program at Moody Middle School for rising 5th graders. I am here for all students. I can see individual students from parent and teacher referral. I am happy to work with your child(ren).
