Shea Butter Mix Project

Student's utilized their knowledge of proportions to make enough shea butter for a specific number of people. This project also provided students with the knowledge of profit and loss.
Career Day: May 24th, 2017
Career Day at Teachers Prep was a huge success this year. Twenty-two presenters including lawyers, flight attendants, cosmetologists, paralegals, FedEx, NAVY, ARMY, Military reps, educators, and future doctors, among others were in attendance to talk about how they arrived to their current career. Students asked great questions as they showed their enthusiasm and appreciation for learning about the different paths they could take in their future. The day started off with a light breakfast followed by presentations. Students got to see five to six different presenters and received raffle tickets for participating in discussions. The day continued with performances by TPS students including essay presentations by Isaiah Minter and Beres Lewis; a spoken word piece by Emmanuel St. Bernard and Brian Bascom, and a musical piece by Jirni Redding. The event concluded with a luncheon for all. Many thanks again to all of our guests, students and staff who helped make this day possible. Be sure to check out Jirni Reddings performance of "I'll Rise Up" in the video archive.
