KidsTek launched its first live online summer program for high school students last week. During this summer camp, students will learn how to build a resume, partake in an ethics curriculum created by the Better Business Bureau, and engage in helpful strategies and tips for job interviews.
Teaching online is no easy task. Everything is different, especially not being able to see students in person. Keshun Taylor is a student that made this transition just a little easier for KidsTek instructors. Emily Tow, one of the summer instructors, said, “Keshun has been a great student since day one. Despite the tech challenges of remote learning, Keshun always makes sure to work with me and the other instructors to ensure he is understanding and excelling. We love his positive attitude!” Not only has Keshun done a great job at persisting through challenges, but he has also excelled in advocating for himself when he needs help.
Keshun will be beginning his sophomore year at Hinkley High School in Aurora this fall. In his free time, he enjoys playing Fortnite on his PS4. He hopes to go to college when he finishes high school, and he wants to eventually be a business owner.
We are grateful to Keshun for being a highlight during our days in this “work from home” phase of life, and look forward to seeing all of the wonderful things he does in the future!
