Dear Parents/ Guardians,
I hope that everyone is feeling refreshed from that extra day off yesterday! Last week our falcons learned about another career opportunity. On Friday, the 7th and 8th graders heard from our February career speaker. I am so blessed to have such wonderful parents at SFdS. This month we heard from Dr. Rachel Espiritu. Dr. Espiritu is the mother of Nathan and Cesca Asilo. She is also a practicing endocrinologist at Summa Health.
Dr. Espiritu helped students better understand what an endocrinologist does and the everyday life of a doctor. She also explained the long and intense journey of becoming a doctor. She explained what qualities a student must possess. Students learned how important it is to be determined and motivated when perusing this career. Dr. Espiritu discussed the good communication skills, critical thinking skills, and problem-solving skills that are necessary. Students learned about the education needed to become a doctor and became aware of the cost of medical school.
Please check out the photos below of your students being educated by Dr. Espiritu.
