PathFinder ” A Purpose Journey for Teens”
When you were a kid, did anyone ever discuss with you matters related to your purpose? For me, I can say "no". Sometimes, I look back on life and I wonder, "What if"? What if someone would have asked me questions such as, "Shaun, what do you think you can offer to the world" or " Shaun, how do you plan on making your life count"? Any of these questions would have slightly altered the way I viewed the world. In my class, my job isn’t to tell your child what to think, my job is to get them to think. I will be their guide, not their guru. Math, English, Science, Social Studies, and other classes are important, but understanding " Your Why" is one of the most pivotal realizations we will make in our lives. My class is going to be engaging. It is going to be fun, but most of all, it will be life-changing. I understand "My Why." Hopefully, I can help your child do the same.
P.S. I also love talking about Economics, Financial Literacy, Career Choices, and Entrepreneurship as well.
