Do Now Round Up: President's Cabinet

Last week’s Do Now looked at different Cabinet positions that President Obama will be filling for his second term in office. We asked students what cabinet position they would be best suited for and why. It was interesting to hear students’ interest in education, homeland security, defense, and even agriculture. See our Storify post below to view some of their responses.

    I really would love to be in Obama’s cabinet dealing with education(Secretary of Education) because I feel as if America is negligent towards education, and I have some great ideas which can really reform America. I feel as if education is the core of a society and without a core a society truly cannot exist. America is not a true society because we lack the core-education.

    The President’s Cabinet consists of the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, and the Secretary of the Treasury as well as many other important positions. If I were to apply for any position of the President’s cabinet I would choose the Secretary of the Treasury. To be a part of the President’s cabinet you must have the ability handle stressful situations. The position would have to inform the President on economic and financial complications, encourage sustainable economic growth and other financial problems of the United States. Personally, I work the best under pressure and have a high intelligence level in math and economics. I would be able to handle the stressful position and responsibility of with holding the previous Secretary’s image.
