R.A. Long High School “Job Coach”, Tiffany Kotera, recruits local businesses to provide students work experience. This is one of many ways the district supports students in their growth to be “work ready” high school graduates. The students do outstanding work and gain real life experience outside the classroom.

These experiences wouldn’t be possible without the cooperation and support from businesses like Red Leaf Coffee, Walgreens, Diamond Showcase, Grounds for Opportunity, Sutinen Computers and Little Indian Embroidery. Thank you to the businesses who participate, and employees like Mrs. Kotera, who do such a great job supporting, teaching and mentoring students.

In the photos below, students Adam Verd and Kassidi Williams, take time to be interviewed by Daily News reporter Mallory Gruben. R.A. Long principal Rich Reeves and Tiffany Kotera provided background information and quotes for TDN’s story.

If your business would like to participate in having students come out and work, please contact Tiffany Kotera or any of the high schools.
