This interactive program provides an unforgettable approach to help children explore interesting aspects of different careers. Students will have fun joining Katie Kangaroo as she interviews characters in her town in search of learning about different careers. She wants to decide which careers interest her the most. Students move Katie to different places in town so she can ask each character 3 questions about his/her career. These careers follow the 16 career clusters defined by the Department of Education.

This program can be used in classrooms using digital white boards, such as SMART™ or Promethean™ Boards or individually on a computer. It will help students learn much more than typical information about different careers.

Following each interview, Katie writes what she learned in her Magic Pad which she keeps in her Career Pouch. She is also given a gift from each character that describes the career so she will have a reminder of what she learned. Images of these objects are included on the CD and can be printed on cards and used in several different follow-up activities that are provided.

Susan Bowman

Susan has worked as a social worker, and school counselor at the elementary, middle and high school levels. She has also worked as a counselor for incarcerated youth and started a non-profit, faith-based organization (Youth Hope Foundation) to help these young people. In 2005, the GED Testing Service awarded Susan with its highest honor, the Cornelius P. Turner Award, presented annually to a GED graduate who has made outstanding contributions to society in education or public, or social service. The award is named for Cornelius P. Turner, the founder of the GED Testing Program.

Susan has written 20 books and has led professional seminars throughout the U.S. and abroad on topics such as mentoring, challenging adolescents and self-injury. Susan’s remarkable life-story has been an encouragement to young people and professionals. She ran away from home at age 14. By age 19, she was divorced, on welfare and the mother of three children. Yet, with only a 7th grade education, a mentor encouraged her to pursue her education and she eventually earned a GED, then a BA degree, and finally an Ed.S. degree in counseling. Her experience as a runaway and teen mom has helped her to reach some of the most distraught youth in juvenile detention facilities.
