In today’s episode of My Disney Class Podcast, Howie and Ryan look at integrating career exposure and guidance into classroom teaching. Just think about all the different types of storytellers there are just working for Disney Imagineering. There are engineers of all kinds of course but they only make up a small number nowadays in the vast careers that help make the magic. Other Imagineering jobs include writers of all kinds, color and palate specialists, agricultural specialists, painters, graphic designers, the list goes on and on. 

So what are we as educators doing to help expose students to all the careers out there besides the doctors, lawyers, baseball players, etc?  Are we showing students that you don’t have to make it to the major leagues to be part of professional baseball? What about being a Pitchcast Operator, Statcast 3D Operator, Communications Coordinator, Data Scientists. These are all current jobs listed to be filled by major league baseball. So you get the point, there are more opportunities than we think students know about and we think that it’s part of our jobs as educators to expose them to those opportunities. 

So whether you have a passion for working for Disney, Major League Baseball, or whatever career, there is a way that you can become part of that story. We just need to make sure our students understand this, so they can see the possibilities and find the drive to work towards a career in their passion. 

As we start year 7 of the My Disney Class Podcast, we want to take a moment and thank all of you who are part of our listener community.
