As most students fall into their daily school habits at Gull Lake, Education for Employment students are just getting used to switching back and forth between schools everyday.
“At first it was hard to create a routine because I was at GL in the morning, then Comstock for my EFE, then back to GL,” junior Gabi Fadden said. “But now that I’ve gotten used to it, it’s fun.”
Fadden attends Comstock High School for her health science EFE, along with juniors Makenzy Schick, Ansley Haan and Reid Williams and senior Emilee Grimes.
“I think that EFE is an amazing opportunity to get experience in a field you’re interested in,” Schick said. “This way you have actual practice and can decide whether or not you want to pursue it without going in blindly choosing a career.”
Many past and current EFE students have emphasized the advantage they gain by taking an employment-based class. Because of their unique experience and involvement in the field, EFE students generally have a better idea of what they want to study in college.
