Cibola Education Professions students put on anti-bullying assemblies

Two Cibola High School Education Professions students have a message of positivity for local elementary school students.

Joshua Dusek and Daniel Webb, both Cibola seniors, conducted a leadership and anti-bullying assembly at Ronald Reagan Fundamental School on Oct. 22 and will put on a second assembly at Mesquite Elementary School on Nov. 16. CHS students anti-bullying assembly

“Both of us were bullied at the elementary school level and looking back on it now, I feel that if there were a high school student there who said something about it, kids would be more inclined to change and not bully others,” Webb said.

The assemblies are part of the Education Professions 1 course that Dusek and Webb are enrolled in at Cibola through the Career & Technical Education program.

The Education Professions class, which is offered at four Yuma Union High School District schools, prepares students for employment or postsecondary opportunities in the education field. It provides instruction in education career choices, education structure and systems, theory, pedagogy, developmental stages, learning styles and methodology. Students receive interactive experiences with students at different age levels, in a variety of content areas in education environments. They will develop leadership and employability skills through participation in Educators Rising.
