The past two weeks have been busy for Laura Richards’ Careers with Children class at Roxbury High School. Beginning with a special visitor last week. 

Julie Barros from the Morris and Sussex New Jersey Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children (CASA) organization came to speak to the students on October 12th and 13th. She explained how CASA provides children who are receiving services from the Division of Child Protection and Permanency with a voice in the court system.

Barros shared stories, explained other relevant career options, and detailed the information about the importance of child advocacy.

“Students were very touched by the impact of the CASA organization and the loving dedication of its volunteers,” shared Richards.

Students then had an opportunity and privilege of visiting the Goddard School in Randolph on October 17th and 18th. There they were able to observe how teachers communicate and meet the needs of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers.

Richards added, “The Goddard School warmly welcomed the high school students and arranged for a classroom observational visit with a chance for the students to interview the teaching staff. The students were very excited to see the compassionate enthusiasm of their teaching staff and operational excellence of the school.”

The students were also shown the Goddard School’s extensive garden and outdoor classroom which allows teachers to engage their classes in STEM activities while introducing life skills.
