New Haven– Students in my New Horizons’ JAG class have been researching and learning about various fields of life skills. Topics included financial literacy, life, health and auto insurance, budgeting and the importance of documents such as passports, state ID’s and birth certificates.

Students in my JAG classes were assigned with a project in which they were to pick a topic we have been recently focusing on and ‘teach it’ to the class. Sophomore Walnaesha Teabout is seen here assisting a student in searching for and applying for a local part time job. Ms. Teabout chose to teach our class how to search for jobs using popular job search websites, like She did such a wonderful job instructing her peers. It takes confidence and skill to present in front of peers and Walnaesha did so with tact and patience.

This project exercises several of the 37 competencies of the Jag senior model, including  delivering a presentation to a group; communicating verbally; and  demonstrating team leadership.
