Mansfield Middle School is taking full advantage of both their career development class, and the role they play in molding future members of society. It’s a big task, but they’re well on their way to success.

Last week, all the 8th graders in the career development class took time away from school, and focused on job shadowing potential career paths for the day. They followed prospective careers paths to learn what they do, in specific job functions.
