Mrs. Sherry Moore, GCDF
Greetings! I am once again excited to serve as the Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF), Work Based Learning (WBL) Support, and Work Based Learning Data Entry Clerk for McCormick Middle and High Schools. The purpose of the GCDF is to ensure the coordination, accountability, and delivery of career awareness, career development, and career exploration, within the sixteen career clusters, for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. As the middle and high school GCDF and WBL Support to the Guidance Department, I work alongside numerous professionals ranging colleges, universities, government, to corporate human resource employees, to facilitate and provide career and college readiness opportunities that guide students on a pathway to success. Student career-to-work opportunities, as defined by South Carolina State Department of Education (See WBL Manual @ ed.sc.gov), are recorded in PowerSchool and on the Annual Career Specialist Accountability Report.
I am positive that this school year will bring greater possibilities for new extended learning opportunities that "inspire, challenge, and prepare our students for tomorrow's global opportunities." One of those opportunities is a soft skills course training by MicroBurst Learning for all high school students. This new addition to ongoing career and college readiness events and activities will better equip our students for real world challenges. Some of the ongoing career and college readiness events and activities include:
College, Universities, Business, and Manufacturing
Job Shadowing on Site and Virtual Job Shadowing in the classroom
Armed Services Career Awareness Day
Round Table Talks and Guest Speakers
Business and Entrepreneurship Showcase
Career Activity Class
Workshops and Seminars
Please refer to the calendar for upcoming college and career readiness activities and events or contact me during school hours by calling (864) 443-0040.
