    Hi Jacqui! I’m almost finished with my MS curriculum except one lesson you mentioned in the summer pd that I cannot find a site for. “Take career test & create graphic organizer of their choice (re:who they are, what they need to achieve) ” I have choices for the organizer, and career information http://www.bls.gov/k12/students.htm or ww.myfuture.com, but not a career tests. I would appreciate if you can point me in the right direction. Thank you!

    Perfect timing, Marcel. I’ll be updating the pages over the next few months and will blend these in.
