MixInc and Business Communications Instructor


Business Communications: Business Communications focuses on developing communication skills across the board. We focus on how we communicate inter personally, how we communicate with businesses, and how businesses communicate with us. Students will focus on improving listening skills, traits for successful business people, creating a resume, interviewing, problem solving in a work setting, and media literacy.

MixInc: MixInc is an entrepreneurial class where students work in collaborative groups to innovate new products to solve old problems. As students collaborate with their teams they work to create a prototype, pitch their idea, place their product on the Marketplace and continually gather feedback to make improvements to the final product. Throughout this iterative process, students keep a portfolio to demonstrate their milestones on their journey to becoming entrepreneurs.
