First grade students in Mrs. Marcus and Miss Orluck’s classes had an on-campus field trip on Monday when alumnus Dr. Pamela Ross came to speak.

The students met in the library where Dr. Ross shared about both starting a business and serving in the community.  Dr. Ross founded a non-profit legal clinic in Castro Valley.  She has taught at the university level, spoken to high school students, and performed family law, estate planning, immigration law, and landlord/tenant law.

Learning about starting a business in First Grade?  “Dr. Ross spoke about being an attorney and about her non-profit.  Most of all, she helps people.  Kids wore costumes and did a mock trial dressed as Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.  It gave students a taste of what a lawyer is, what a lawyer does, and how lawyers help their community,” reports Mrs. Garcia, Redwood Christian Elementary Librarian.  “You don’t just choose a career; you are looking to use your education to serve God.”  Students were then encouraged to check out books on careers to take home.
