Integrated entrepreneurship continues to develop in Brookwood cluster

This year will mark the first that Brookwood Elementary School teacher Karen Mitchel’s entrepreneurship class of second graders will have been introduced to the program as kindergartners.

Since 2017, kindergarten through second grade students at the Snellville-based school have been learning rudiments of entrepreneurship through a connection, a course that students attend outside of their regular classroom that rotates every few days. Students are taught to recognize opportunities in the classroom, apply for jobs, go through interviews and buy or sell goods and services with the school’s currency, Brookwood Bucks.
