Caleigh is settling into her role as the Transition Counselor for 9th and 10th grade students and absolutely loving it! She spends a lot of her time meeting with students one-on-one exploring their strengths, interests, and goals for life after HSHMC, as well as making sure that they have the tools and resources to make it all happen. She feels immense privilege getting to witness the students’ exploration and personal growth as they work to develop their plan for success.

She has also had a chance to support in the College and Career Exploration class where a recent stand out was Malachi telling her that SchoolLinks, a future career and education exploration tool used often in class, is “actually 10/10 cool!”

Recently, Caleigh has been working with Ms. Rios to develop new student job opportunities through the We Can Work grant, which provides students with opportunities to gain skills and meaningful paid work experiences. A few WCW wins from this week: Erika continues to work hard as a TA and an office assistant at a specialized therapy clinic in Kensington, and Tierra has finished applying to the City of San Diego’s Mentorship Program, where she
plans to work virtually assisting with the Public Library’s Youth Recreation Program.
