Hello! I just joined this group to get some ideas. This year I will teach Early Childhood Education 2 (ECE 2). I am desperate for curriculum ideas! I had a very boring curriculum for ECE 1 this past school year. Help please?

Can you do field trips to daycare centers? Can you invite guest speakers to your class, or at least arrange to do video calls? Does your curriculum offer credentialing in early childcare? Can your students volunteer to look after teacher’s kids during PD days? I don’t teach ECE, but use your imagination….

Hello Folks, Last Monday I had an HR discussion for Cognizant. Since I'm holding a counteroffer of value 16Lac, I asked 18Lac as an expected salary. At last, HR said further exceptional approval is required and the remaining process will take 3 to 4 days.
Since then no further update on my candidature. I tried to reach out to HR by both Mobile & Email. But no response
Will they update something?
How long will they take for exceptional approval?

Do you use an actual textbook for your courses? Why or why not? If not, what do you use instead?


Who have you needed to convince regarding the power of CTE? There’s always someone who thinks “this is for people that can’t” when we know that it’s a power move for all that are interested to accelerate and grow! 😎


Does your school have a CTE inclusive Orientation? Is it stand-alone, an exploratory course, or something else?


Hi! I am currently an Early Childhood Teacher, but I am interested in becoming an Early Childhood Education instructor at a technical high school. It will be a big jump from teaching K to teaching high school students but I am really excited about the possibility of working with the next generation of teachers. What are the best things about CTE? What challenges can I expect?


Are any of you using Arduinos in either Robotics or Programming?

I am getting ready to start next fall and am setting up the class around a book, and course, by Dr Peter Dalmis. Is anyone doing anything else?


How do you measure your program’s quality? Are those metrics set by you, your district, state?


I'm looking for other CTE educators that teach the Education & Training Career Path. I'm curious as to how these educators structure and teach their classes under this cluster.


What made you choose to be a CTE Educator? How did you transition from industry?

Student Enrollment Swaps/Withdrawals. Do these things happen in your CTE program? Can it happen at anytime? Do you get a say? Any other rules or standard practices?


This was how we ended the week in Culinary Arts. Fried chicken breasts stuffed with crispy bacon, Pepper Jack cheese, and green chiles. We served these with mashed potatoes, country gravy, and corn.

Does your center work together to cross curriculum and create projects with multiple programs involved?


Our department is having a difficult time building our programs. Admin takes us for granted and doesn’t include us in any of the planning. I have a few ideas that I hope will help, but could use some advice on more ways to recruit students to our courses. The courses are relevant and engaging, but we have a trouble getting noticed on our large campus. What ways or methods do you use to draw students into your CTE programs?


I hesitate to ask, but what type of budget can you typically expect for your program? Does the school set aside funds (e.g. Tax Levy, Fair Student Funding)? Are there any grants, such as Perkins, you routinely take advantage of? Based on comfort, feel free to share numbers!

Budget is always a hot topic, as people try to save money and cut corners, how have you designed systems (fundraising, donors, etc.) to supplement the funds for your sequence’s needs?

For internships, what tactics do you employ to recruit industry hosts?

We talk about a lot of positives, but are there any negatives in being a CTE Teacher?


How does your program/school handle internships? (Prerequisites, paid/unpaid, duration (hours), paperwork, etc.)


What type of EdTech tools are you using in your CTE classroom?

“It’s not just what you know, but who you know.” The concept of Social Capital, professional network building, is important for all professionals and should start early. What opportunities can be provided to scholars to build their social capital?


In addition to internships, what types of work-based learning experiences do you offer for your students?
