Des Moines offers students social media and real estate courses

Luigi Guzman, a Des Moines public school junior, is considering a career as a realtor like his mother, and Perla Arce, also a junior, wants to know how she can help with her family’s year-old roofing business. .

“Since they’re both immigrants from Mexico and don’t really know how much of the economy works here…I thought I’d work with them,” Arce said.

The Des Moines Public Schools Central Campus, which focuses on teaching vocational and technical skills to high school students, will provide Guzman and Arce with those skills.

Helping students achieve their goals is exactly what teacher Tim Brickley, a longtime business teacher, wants to do. New this year, he teaches a course on investing and real estate.

Tim Brickley teaches a course on investing and real estate at Central Campus in Des Moines on Wednesday, August 24, 2022.

“I’m excited to help students,” he said. “And it’s not even just about finding their career path, but finding a way to help their family, help their friends, or help themselves.”

Guzman decided to take the real estate course to learn more about the industry, including basic terminology.

This school year, which began Wednesday in Des Moines, students also received lessons in small business creation, social media marketing, content marketing, e-commerce entrepreneurship and hospitality management and tourism.
