Students of Howard Haber ELC Learn about Careers from Professionals


Howard Haber Early Learning Center’s teachers make learning come to life, while supporting the learning standards of the Common Core Curriculum! As a part of the school’s Community Helpers unit, children learn about career development, including a variety of jobs that adults hold in the community.


Student interest and awareness was inspired right before the children’s very eyes with visits from local police, firefighters, nurses, dentists, construction workers, and postal workers who perform their work to serve the Bronx community.


During these visits, the students used scientific thinking to ask questions about the tools and materials our community helpers use on the job. They even had the opportunity to use a variety of tools to experiment!
