Welcome to Mrs. Stricklin's website!

Career Preparation involves partnerships with local business and industry, which allows students to train at the actual businesses.

Career Preparation allows students to earn school credit for their on-the-job training.  Students must work a minimum of fifteen hours per week (180 hours each trimester for a total of 540 hours for the year) and attend class daily.  Career Prep students receive one full credit each trimester for a total of three credits for the year.

Students If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email or phone. My conference period is from 10:00-11:00 a.m. My email address is patriciastricklin@hebisd.edu and my phone number is 817-282-2551 ext.7422.

Classroom instruction is offered two times during the school day.
