Nyrita Austin - Career Facilitator
Nyrita L. Austin
Hello H.R.M.S. Family,
My name is Nyrita Austin and I'm the Career Facilitator for Hardeeville-Ridgeland Middle School. I have worked for the Jasper County School District since 2009. I worked as the Pregnancy Prevention Coordinator, Student Concern Specialist, SC GEAR UP Graduation Coach, Parent Liaison, and now as the Career Facilitator. Prior to coming to the school district I worked at the Department of Juvenile Justice for four years and Family Resources Genesis Home for Boys in Bluffton for 2 years. I'm a certified Global Career Development Facilitator. I look forward to working with you and helping you and your child to be successful. This year we will continue to use a program called MajorClarity with all of our students.
MajorClarity unifies teaching, counseling, and career readiness to make it easier for everyone to focus on what matters: equipping students for meaningful and successful careers. We believe that engagement is everything. Students learn best when they are enthusiastic about learning things that feel important to them—and to their personal goals (but don’t just take our word for it—that’s what the research says). We know there are as many different versions of success as there are students. But no matter what it looks like for each learner—a job, 4- or 2-year college, an apprenticeship—MajorClarity is built to empower each individual with the ability to flourish after graduation.
The unique activities in the platform are proven to engage students more than any others. That means students retain information and make connections across subject areas. Activities are personalized to student interests according to an assessment of personality and learning styles. MajorClarity is built to provide academic advising for all learners. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about careers or MajorClarity!
