Hi, my name is Macey WIlson and I am the 8th grade General Employability teacher at GMS. I graduated from Texas A&M University (WHOOP!!!) and this is my 26th year teaching.
By appointment only.
Employability skills are the skills and attitudes that allow employees to get along with their co-workers, make important work-related decisions and become strong members of the work team. Discovering job possibilities that link skills, abilities, interests, values, needs, and work environment preferences is an experiential learning process that takes place over time.
This course is designed to guide your child through learning the skills that can be transferable among a variety of jobs and careers and are considered essential in any employment situation.Your child will learn to apply basic knowledge of what is expected in the world of work.
In General Employability, I encourage your child to ask these three questions: Who am I? Where am I going? How am I going to get there?
