This week’s JA People of Action features Janet Grider
This week’s JA People of Action features Janet Grider, 8th grade school counselor at Bowling Green Junior High School. Mrs. Grider utilizes several different JA curricula with her 8th grade students. Mrs. Grider’s favorite thing about JA is, “the Inspire Virtual Career Fair.” She also said, “I thoroughly enjoy using the Junior Achievement lessons with my students. Junior Achievement gets the students actively involved in the lessons giving them more buy-in. I love that a large portion of the lessons are devoted to teaching the students about the soft skills needed in future careers.”
