  • What Happens in Vegas Shouldn't Stay in Vegas

    This week, I'm heading west to join more than 3,500 CTE professionals at ACTE's CareerTech VISION in Las Vegas. The VISION agenda includes a wide variety of concurrent sessions. Given there are more sessions than there is time to attend, I'm reviewing program descriptions to plan my schedule. This prompts me to reflect on the bigger picture of conference participation and reasons for attending.

  • Building a New Maine ACTE

    Our panelists, led by Dave Keaton, presented the work we have done thus far in developing a draft Constitution and Bylaws for our proposed state ACTE chapter. Maine is currently a non-unified state, and it is the goal of this group to inform instructors of the overview of what we have been doing, as well as the history of ACTE in our state.

  • Can You Hear Me Now?

    I had the opportunity to speak at a workshop for CTE instructors on July 17. I was asked to briefly talk on the benefits of membership in ACTE and the leadership opportunity with the Fellowship Program. Patrick Biggerstaff, 2012 Region III Fellow, asked me to share with the attendees.

  • An Interview With a CTE Leader

    It was my absolute pleasure to interview him. Dave has been a long-time member of ACTE, as well as a high school principal and CTE director in our state.

  • A Fellow, an Advocate

    Four years ago, out of curiosity and the need to broaden my horizons, I asked my administrator if I could attend the National Policy Seminar in Washington DC with ACTE. My assistant administrator, Brian Funk, had attended the previous year and filled me in on the experiences and duties of a participant. It sounded like fun to me and gave me a chance to see my nation’s capital for the first time.

  • An ACTE Fellow at NPS

    I was very fortunate to accompany two very seasoned NPS attendees from Maine, Chris Downing, director at Waldo County Technical Center, and Dave Keaton, director at Region II School of Applied Technology. They had established appointments with all four of our state senators in the House and Senate.
