I'm so excited to welcome you to my 7th grade CTE Intro. I am excited to begin a new year. The main focus of Career & Technical Education (CTE) is to help students identify interests, traits, and skills and connect them to effective education and career planning. Through the course of the school year they will have 3 different teachers each covering the 3 areas in CTE (Family & Consumer Science, Technology and Business) in addition to the Career Exploration aspect.
In my class, during the 1st Term, we will be covering Career Development which includes:
* Budgets * Health Care
* Resume * Economics
* Secondary Education * Personality
In my class, during the 2nd Term, we will be covering the Family & Consumer Science portion of the curriculum which covers:
* Family Dynamics
* Developing Independence
* Child Care
* Sewing Construction
* Food & Nutrition
Today, students got to know the teacher a little better as well as some of their classmates. We then started to discuss what students wanted to be when they grew up.
