Find out how two motivated seniors manage the demands of school and a part-time job.

“I can’t have a job because I won’t be able to manage the time well.”

The previous phrase is a common one for many high school students when they are asked if they have a job. With the amount of homework and extracurricular commitments that teenagers have, school and work just doesn’t mix well for many students.

But a few Christian Brothers students are learning to manage their time between their education and the work force. Michael Klein (‘13) says “ it’s a daily grind” and it is definitely “not easy” to maintain his job at a local fast food restaurant during the school year.

The busy senior has learned to schedule ahead to keep up with his work while not completely throwing away his social life. Working twice a week for five hours each day, Michael says he definitely “enjoys the pay” despite the hard work and dedication.

Sam Howard (‘13) loves his job. So much so, he tries to go daily just to be around everything and do his work. The senior works at the Sacramento Executive Airport for an air repair station. The hardworking Sam loves “being around airplanes all the time” so working is more of a pastime for him than a chore.

However, like school, a job it has its down times. For Sam, the “days [when] no one calls or no one needs anything done” are the most boring. Michael agrees, saying, “there are some down times when working at a fast food restaurant and it could get a little boring, but when people come it’s pretty hectic.”

While having a job isn’t for everyone, Sam and Michael are good examples of the hardworking and motivated people that Christian Brothers encourages its’ students to be.
