I had the opportunity to serve in an external capacity as a part of the
Teacher Enrichment Workshop in conjunction with the MAGEC-STEM PLUS
(Minority Access to Graduate Education and Careers in Science,
Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Plus). The workshop was
provided, along with a multitude of other programs, through a grant from
the National Science Foundation.

In an effort to enhance students and parents knowledge
of preparing for postsecondary options after high school, the Savannah-Chatham
County Public School System has developed a series of college and career readiness
forums to help its constituents navigate this process after high school.

It sometimes seems as if elective and core courses are divided by a big
boundary line: On one side are the required courses for graduation, on
the other side are, well, the "other courses."

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.

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.

Tuesday, I had the opportunity to meet with future agriculture teachers
who are nearing the end of their college experiences at Virginia Tech,
Penn State and the University of Delaware. Since we are in state
mandated testing week in NJ, this was a virtual meeting where I skyped
into their meeting. Earlier in the week, they had written some questions
about involvement in professional organizations as well as using
technology in the classroom. Those questions gave me the inspiration for
a topic of being a connected educator.
