Many other jobs were referred to throughout your program, including music therapists, art therapists, child-life specialists, speech therapists, community college faculty, four-year college faculty, children’s book authors and illustrators, educational writers, and more.
For this Project, choose three jobs that truly interest you and interview three people who have these jobs. For instance, if one of your choices is the job of children’s librarian, you will need to interview a children’s librarian.
