There is something unique about Career and Technical Education teachers.
Sure they are like all teachers in many ways: caring, dedicated, generous, and creative. But there is a unique approach to the way they facilitate student learning.
I have had the opportunity to observe CTE teachers in hundreds of situations since I started as an agriculture teacher 50 years ago. The last 11 years with the NYS CTE Technical Assistance Center have brought my education career full circle to CTE after many years of focusing on curriculum, instruction, and leadership. This is my last blog as part of the TAC project, so it is an appropriate time to reflect on the unique community of CTE teachers.
