Elementary Collection: Jobs

What does it take to be a ballerina? Why would a scientist collect poop? How might a Black, female police officer feel about the state of policing today? No two jobs require the same set of skills and interests. This elementary collection features the voices of workers as they describe various aspects of their jobs, including why they chose their work, what tasks their job requires, and what it takes to be successful. These stories detailing the passion many workers feel toward their jobs, as well as the teamwork and determination they bring to the workplace, will open students’ minds to some of the many possible career paths ahead of them.
