“How do we expect young people to dream if they don't know what they can dream about? Opportunities for career exploration give young people broader exposure to the working world they will one day enter. It helps them "connect the dots" between school and career in ways that keep them motivated to graduate with the skills they will need for the future.” - America's Promise Alliance expressing the importance of career exploration.
Lockerman-Bundy Elementary School's motto is "College and Career Begins Here." By the time students graduate from Lockerman-Bundy, they will have had an opportunity to visit seven different universities. These universities include Bowie State, Morgan State, Stevenson, Johns Hopkins, Coppin State, Towson and University of Maryland Baltimore County.
Mrs. Kimberly Hill-Miller, Principal of Lockerman-Bundy Elementary School, was one of five Baltimore City Public School principals to win the 2018 Heart of the School award. Mrs. Hill-Miller produced a music video to help her students prepare for the i-Ready assessments in math and language arts. (see link) https://vimeo.com/256960253.
i-Ready is an interim assessment aligned with Maryland's college-and-career-ready standards and measures students' (grades 3-12) understanding of the standards in mathematics and English/language arts. On August 28, 2018 a BCPS press release revealed, Lockerman-Bundy Elementary School students showed gains of 5.8 percentage points in Level 4 or 5, English / Language Arts on PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) in 2017-18 over 2016-17 (https://www.baltimorecityschools.org/cms/lib/MD01001351/Centricity/Domain/8049/20180828-PressRelease-PARCCResultsPDF.pdf)
Mrs. Hill-Miller anticipates a 65 inch interactive television with webcam will be installed in a classroom. She would like some students to in addition to seeing Career Day participants face to face to have an opportunity to see Career Day participants in their workplaces using Skype video conference technology, i.e. a virtual job shadow.
