STHS AcademiCon Speaker
This was the third year Diego is invited to be a speaker at the AcademiCon at Santa Teresa High School. This year, he asked for classroom audiences to be able to interact individually with each student as they performed a Goal Setting activity facilitated by Diego. First he spoke about the positive attitude one needs to succeed in school which will later open more doors in life after high school. "It's easy to make decisions, but it's hard to live with them. So be smart in what you decide to do and who you decide to hang with." Students were responsive to Diego's instructions and were lucky to leave with a tangible take away from the session that will remind them of the specific goals they have written down for themselves. This paper is now meant to be placed somewhere that the student will see everyday to remind him or her of the steps necessary to achieve their vision.
