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

I didn’t want to teach students to take state standardized tests, so I decided to teach what my degree was in (business management). I teach Business and Finance classes and love it!

I recently received my certification to teach business related classes. I am frustrated because there are not a lot of openings. Teachers usually find a home and stay until retirement. My timing is messed up.😬 I want a high school classroom. I keep telling myself that this is a great time to create my classes/lessons. Advice?

I didn’t even know CTE existed when I went back to school to get my MAT. I had been a pharmacy tech for 10 years and I felt I had gone about as far as I could with it. The year before I graduated a friend of mine had started building the Medical science CTE program at this school and recommended me for the position. The hardest part for me has been working with high school age kids, my MAT was for elementary and also figuring out how to make this work on an online platform.

I didnt know about CTE until I considered a career change from healthcare. I came upon it when I was looking at my options. I dont think I would've become a teacher if CTE wasn't available.
