Toler Preparing for our Future

Toler Career Day

Over twenty adults, and a penguin and an alligator, came to Toler January 23rd to talk about careers. Workers from the Dallas Zoo came to share with our Pre-K Kindergarten and First Grade students who met Brisket the penguin and Bendy the alligator. The dee-jay brought the party to Second grade. Our Zumba parent got Third grade up and running. We met the Judge in Fourth grade and Ms. Bain shared her prized art work with Fifth grade and impressed several students with her talents.   Mr. Pittman gave the students a lesson on how their paychecks will look and how much taxes we have to pay.  Most of our students did not know about SS numbers and FICA.  We learned how much pressure an Executive Chef at Cullpepper’s is under when he runs his restaurant.  Did you know that the executive chef runs the entire operation—not just the kitchen? We had students looking at floor plans designing A/C units for homes.     Our communications specialist/Professor was impressed that some of our students knew some words in French and Japanese.  Some students asked playground installer to help with some things on the Toler playground. Mr. Pettus talked about his experiences in the Navy while Ms. Carpenter informed students that teachers do have to have degrees and pass tests!! We had someone ask the Judge Dale Tillery if he wore the grey curly wig in court like he has seen on TV.  Of course, he also had to tell our students that he does not know Judge Judy.  We had someone ask the police officers about their training and do you have to be in “super shape?”  

Our consoler, Ms. Mendez, who coordinated everything for us, said our guests were were impressed by our Toler students. That they had thoughtful questions and were impressed that they were taking notes. See a video of the day's activities in our Media Gallery below.
