Participation in the ACTE Fellowship Program motivated me to take an active role in my state ACTE chapter as Legislative Chair. I am honored to serve my state not only to support CACTE
members’ awareness of local, state, and national CTE initiatives and funding but to personally carve out time to support my awareness of these topics.
My career in education includes experience as an Arts, Media, and Entertainment Industry sector/Production Arts teacher. I also worked as a district CTE coordinator/resource teacher, where I managed grant funding and supported dual enrollment and teacher professional development district programs. For the last five years, I have been working as a high school principal- CTE, early college, and dual enrollment continue to be a part of my duties; however, due to the busyness of my schedule, my time is limited, but my passion for CTE programming is not. The position will keep me in tune and further support CTE programs that inspire our secondary students through hands-on, real-world learning experiences!
Last week, during my first meeting with our state board committee over Zoom, I got a chance to meet current board members, state fellows, and a national ACTE post-secondary ECMC fellow. In attendance were Past-President Elliott Morris, Diane Walker, I look forward to learning from my CACTE colleagues and getting to know more about everything CTE.
