When it comes to making sure that a teen is ready for college, Elloise Bennett knows the best practices to encourage the student to get there, according to the Del Mar Times.
Bennett, who was a former administrator, believes that the first step is to lay out the options for the student, so that they completely understand the prices and specifics about each university. Bennett thoroughly enjoys her job, and she feels she gives students a better understanding than she had at their age, according to the media outlet.
"The best part of my work as an educator was working with students to see how we could make changes and plan for the future," Bennett told the news source. "Parents want their kids to be competitively eligible, which means standing out … distinguishing yourself by being passionate about something and being outstanding in that passion."
No matter which high school a child goes to, it is important that parents initiate good habits early when it comes to studying and balancing academics and a social life. This way, the teen will not be overwhelmed when they begin college.
