Why do you teach Career and Technical Education?
I teach CTE to highlight different career opportunities that a traditional high school no longer offers. Welding and manufacturing are huge industries in the Bay Area as well as nationally with a viable future. My goal with CTE education is to show students that they can make a living wage doing what they love. If a person enjoys hands-on work, a sense of accomplishment and being in a team setting, I always recommend going into any trade. With so many students in today’s educational system thinking their only option is to go directly to a university and sometimes with an undeclared major. My goal is to expose students to a new life pathway for a career right out of high school or a new college major they can pursue that will be fulfilling as well as highly paid to support a family for years to come.
