Mr. Blake in the class

Mr. Blake is the internship coordinator for PHS. The students in his class only come once every other week, and the rest of the time they're out working for an internship of their choice. When they are in the classroom, the students learn valuable skills such as filling out an application, good interviewing skills and how to be a good worker. Mr. Blake’s class also learns how to give presentations. Throughout second term, his class will be making presentations using videos and pictures from their internships.


Mr. Blake’s class is a great class to take because it gives you hands on experience, and really helps you decide what you want to be when you grow up. It gives you that chance to try out a job that interests you, and find out now if it interests you  or not. That way you don’t end up paying all this money to go to college, and then end up finding out that you don’t like that job enough to make it your career.
