Class focuses on skills beyond school
For young men graduating from high school, adult expectations and situations arrive rapidly and with increasing regularity, and the unprepared can quickly find themselves overwhelmed.
Enter Mike Lanham, a teacher at Baymonte Christian School in Scotts Valley, where he has taught several groups of sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade boys a class he calls Life Skills for Young Men since the beginning of the school year. The school has students in preschool through eighth grade.
