This month, I kicked off my Educator-in-Residency here at ACTE
Headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. My goal is to explore workforce
development issues and strategic partnerships to benefit CTE and ACTE
members as a whole. While purely coincidental, October also happens to
be Connected Educator Month. Curious about how other educators develop
connectedness, I decided to check things out at www.connectededucators.org.

been doing, as well as the history of ACTE in our state.

I'm joining the ACTE staff for three weeks in July 2013, where I will
work on projects related to connecting literacy and CTE. However, my
project will span three months as I create a "Literacy Tool Box," an
easy-to-use, all-in-one online resource, full of creative yet functional
ideas of merging literacy into a CTE classroom. The finished resource
will be made available on ACTE's Common Core web page for teacher use.

I had the opportunity to speak at a workshop for CTE instructors on July
