I am honored to have been selected as the 2013 Association for Career and Technical Education Teacher of the Year. Now more than ever, I am tasked with upholding the ACTE Code of Ethics, especially the statements:
"Joins with other professionals whose mission is to improve the delivery of career and technical education to the nation's citizens."
"Influences effectively the formation of policies and procedures that affect one's professional work."
I hope to be able to use this recognition as 2013 ACTE Teacher of the Year as a way to promote and further advocate for Career and Technical Education.
