  • Building a Program for Other Educators

    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.
