VVSD Mock Job Interviews in Spanish

Another indicator of a return to normalcy in VVSD is the return of the mock job interviews conducted in Spanish for VVSD World Language students.  The interviews serve three purposes: First, to give students a chance to use their additional language skills in a job interview setting; second, it is the culmination of a learning unit exploring the education of Latinos in the United States.

The third benefit is our students are introduced to business and community leaders who speak their language.  Our thanks to all the community leaders who volunteered to assist in this project, especially Fountaindale Public Library Deputy Director Nancy Korczak. Nancy and Romeoville HS senior Denise Orizaba allowed us to sit in on their interview, and after the interview was over, Denise shared with us what the experience was like for her.
