Hiawatha High School Work Based Learning Spotlight Carli Mueller, Hiawatha Middle School This SDS will help me after high school because I want to become a history teacher. Being in the classroom has helped me decide which grade I would like to teach and has made it clear that I do want to be a teacher. It has also helped me develop some ideas on how I would like to teach my students and discipline them. I am very thankful that I am able to get this experience in Mr. Abeita’s classroom!
HMS kicked off our TeamMates Mentoring program today with DeMoine Adams, CEO. Both students and staff are excited about this school-based community partnership. We are looking for community mentors desiring to make a difference in the lives of our youth! For more information, contact HMS. We hope to hear from you!

Hiawatha High School Work Based Learning Spotlight I am Sidney Johansen and I have an SDS class with Mrs. Wege in the ag room. I am taking this SDS to a more involved FFA president by learning about all the different sides of FFA. The Agriscience students have been learning the basics of FFA; the creed, official dress, opening ceremonies, etc, which I am grading in the picture. By having this SDS time I can help Mrs. Wege plan FFA events that can get everyone involved. This will help me after high school because it has taught me to be more of a leader.
Hiawatha High School Work Based Learning Spotlight Kylie Nelson, Kex RX My name is Kylie Nelson. I use my SDS time to shadow the pharmacists at KexRx! I do a lot of observing and listening as the pharmacists answer my questions. This experience is going to benefit my future as I plan on going to KU to become a pharmacist. I took this picture right before I left for the day on Tuesday! To the left is Tony, one of the pharmacists at KexRx and to the right is Alyssa, one of the pharmacy technicians at KexRx.

Hiawatha High School Work Based Learning Spotlight Emma Bigham, Hiawatha Chamber and Visitors Bureau My name is Emma Bigham and I am currently job shadowing Sarah Kleopfer at the Hiawatha Chamber and Visitors Bureau. When I go, which is every other day, I do an array of things that deal with organizing and preparing for local events. Throughout my time here, I have learned all about the traditions of my home town, Hiawatha. I also get a ‘behind the scenes’ look into how all of our local events come about. I have learned time management and organization skills, which will help me in almost any career field that I choose to go into.
