Wethersfield High School’s career counselor Mark Danaher has given students the opportunity to learn something new about their potential post-secondary studies.
This Friday, Christina Mogelnicki, an orthopedic physical therapist, is coming to WHS to provide students a perspective into the field of sports medicine.
One of the most sought-after careers at WHS is Physical Therapy. Mr. Danaher, the host of the Lunch and Learn, said, “I took the career survey done by the students at the high school and looked at the most popular responses and physical therapy happened to be in the top ten responses.” Kids seem to enjoy learning about the treatment of injuries and diseases.
Christina works locally, which made this process very easy. Mr. Danaher says, “I reached out to Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine Centers to see if they had anyone who would be interested. They choose Christina because we are located in Wethersfield, which worked out well for us.”
Ms. Mogelnicki will be speaking during a “Lunch and Learn”, which will take place in room 210 during 1st lunch. Pizza and water will be included.
“The benefits of the lunch and learn for the school and students is they get a chance to talk with a professional in the school” says Mr. Danaher. “We hear their career stories and learn from the choices they make.”
There is still seating available, and students can sign up by texting @whsspea to the number 81010. Don’t pass up the opportunity to broaden your career perspectives.
