+ Career creativity
The University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee College of Education worked with students in Susan Ambriosio’s fifth-grade art class at Emma E. Booker Elementary to create original works of art entitled, “What I Can Be with a College Degree.” Students researched various state universities and programs to determine which ones would interest them. They learned how long it would take to obtain a degree, what salary they would make, what sort of attire each profession would require and what tools to use to get there.
