Listen to the podcast here:
She goes by Rocky when working with students. She earned her Bachelors in elementary ed. and her masters in school counseling. Has worked with students of all ages for many years. She now travels to different organizations to speak about student success and leadership.
More than a One time experience
After traveling and speaking, Rockell felt like she wanted her message to still continue to inspire the students she was speaking to. She made it a short read so that kids could fit it into their busy schedule. This book is a part of her that she leaves with her students to keep teaching them after she leaves.
In the book, she covers important habits that are important in her own life and she has observed in the life of others. For example , habit # 4 is using your resources. When students are struggling in college sometimes they don’t ask for help with finances or schoolwork when help is available to them. When students recognize that there is help available they can implement the help. Some of the habits are basic but if the students are able to start implementing them now, as they continue into adulthood, these habits will carry on.
Hands On Experience
Hands on experience can be easier said that done, but when students are able to participate in an internship or do community service, it gives them the exposure they need to start thinking about what they might like or be good at. Work as much as possible in the field that they think they might be interested in. shadowing a person for a day will give you a lot of insights. It takes a little researching and digging.
