Her presentation was done entirely over the Internet to the students participating in the program. Dr. Teresa Piliouras of the Best We Can Be program was the facilitator.
The Best We Can Be is an online personal enrichment experience that is offered to high school students. The goal is to promote college and career readiness and to develop technology proficiency skills. Only ~25% of graduating high school students are college ready and will go on to receive a college degree. The program encourages students to see the connection between their education and career future and guides them to create realistic plans to achieve their life goals and objectives. The program provides online technology instruction and education to develop skills that are in high demand and are well-paying.
