Each summer a handful of district teachers participate in “externships,” hands-on learning at area businesses where they can pick up first-hand knowledge that will improve their teaching methods.
These opportunities are made possible through a competitive application process. This experience pays off in real-life curriculum applications, professional growth points, and summer stipends.
“Teachers must have an interest in finding links between their curriculum and these real-life applications. Not only do they experience the occupation first-hand, they have the opportunity to network with resources for guest speakers, career day presenters, and possible field trip locations.” Barbra Gonzales, CTE Coordinator.
