Senior Kinzey Brice Job Shadows at Sprout Pediatric Dentistry

On Tuesday, December 11, WASD Career Coordinator Mrs. Colleen Edwards arranged for senior Kinzey Brice to job shadow Dr. Kady Schloesser, Pediatric Dentist and owner of Sprout Pediatric Dentistry. Kinzey observed Dr. Kady for two hours as she examined and cleaned teeth or sedated patients. Kinzey commented, "This time with Dr. Kady made me even more aware of the hard work involved both educationally and in the practice."

Dr. Kady shared her career path, graduating from the University of Scranton with a B. S. in Biology, receiving her D.M.D. at Temple University's Kornberg School of Dentistry, and completing her Pediatric Dental Residency at Temple University's Episcopal Hospital. She received her Pediatric Dental Association Board Certification in November 2016. Kinzey appreciated the opportunity to observe a pediatric dentist in a practical setting.

Mrs. Edwards and Kinzey are grateful for the opportunity to gain real-life perspective about pediatric dentistry practices.

North Intermediate School Welcomes a New Occupant

Four of WNIS's 5th grade students donated a homemade dinosaur (made through cub scouts) to our 3rd grade hallway. The students in 3rd grade have a reading unit themed around dinosaurs, so they thought this was a perfect place for the dinosaur to make his new home. The boys proudly represent Cub Scout Pack 229 of Lake Wallenpaupack.
