Teacher Education

teacher education group photoDoes a future working with young children appeal to you? Both young men and women are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to learn about themselves and their leadership and organizational skills as they work with children in education settings. You can gain a vision of yourself in many careers, including education, recreation, physical, occupational, speech, art, and language therapies, psychology and counseling services, pediatric medicine, and countless other professions. As you progress, you will be offered increased responsibility and the opportunity to spend more time with students in the Little Eagles Preschool and the local elementary and middle schools.

Advisory Committee

Advisory committees serve the CTE programs by acting as liaison between the educational institution and the public. The prinicipal purpose for CTE program/advisory committees is to promote greater cooperation between career and technical education and the private sector in preparing individuals for employment, promoting quality career and technical education and making the career technical education system more responsive to the labor market.

CTE program/advisory committees have three major roles. They are to advise, assist and provide support and advocacy for quality career and technical education. It is through these roles that CTE program/advisory committees work with instructors and administrators to initiate policies, procedures and methods that help strengthen and modernize career and technical education.

Improving the quality of career and technical education can be directly linked to the degree of involvement, participation and commitment of the CTE program/advisory committees. If you would like to be involved in shaping the future of education at MWVCTC and have the skills/background to benefit the Teacher Education Program, please email Ms. Murphy for more information.
