In this episode, I share with you what every 9th, 10th, and 11th grader should have done between June and December of this year (the first half of the academic year). I lay out these 10 DIRECTIVES by grade (9th, 10th, and 11th), with a short explanation as to why each is so essential. If your child is a PrepWeller, who has been keeping up with their videos for the last few months, this will be old news to them. They will have heard this (ideally) and taken action and been on their way. They are my superstars. If you are the parent of a PrepWeller, who hasn’t quite kept up with the weekly lessons, well, now you’ll learn 10 of the most important things that I’ve been directing your child to do since June. Yes, these are just the tip of the iceberg, but worth noting And, hint hint, it might be a good idea for you to check-in with your child to see how they’re doing with these directives.
