McKee Cosmetology at the Nursing Home

Every two weeks, since October 2012, McKee Cosmetology students visit a nursing home and provide beauty treatment under the guidance of their instructor, Ms. Mary Louise Buono. The students go through an extensive training process.

The nursing home has a salon. The Cosmetology students bring extra supplies.  It's an opportunity to build on interpersonal skills. It's also an opportunity to be exposed to careers within the field gerontology and nursing.

It's just two hours and yet the experience resonates for the the residents of the nursing home and for the students. Check out the pictures.

Model House by Robert Krivicic

It's Thanksgiving Eve and who comes down with a model house, Robert Krivicic a sophomore in Mr. O'Connell's Construction class. I must tell you, I am always amazed at how students in the 9th grade develop in the 10th grade the composure and steadiness to complete a model house .

I talked to Robert and he indicated the toughest part, accurately measuring and shaping the angles for the roof. As someone who is all thumbs, the toughest part, manipulating teeny-tiny pieces of wood. Talk about a kinesthetic learning experience.
