A high percentage of students have had a traumatic experience resulting in PTSD.

Personal vs Professional, the importance of separating, setting boundaries and not crossing them.  It is a whole new world coming from 24 years in the steel industry, lots of new terminology and understanding it.  I do feel less dumb after this section, as I had no clue as to some of the terms, extensive notes were taken.

thank you


New Welding instructor 

I now have a general understanding of CTE, its foundation, development, and its continued process of implementing as well as advancing hands on technical learning and educating. As well as its importance.

I plan to utilize the peer resources and course material to help me in my transition from being a certified welder to becoming an educator, Welding Technology Instructor for High School Juniors and seniors

Setting up safety, rules and boundries and expectations up front is the best way to provide an opportunity for a positive learning environment. I love our third party safety program and appreciate it even more after seeing this content.

Having information and suggestions for working with challenging students through the PBIS website provides a great resource.

It is important that educators actively work to participate in organizations that support the development of your CTE program. This extends beyond technical considerations to teaching best practices and engagement of peers and mentors for productive discussion.

It is a good reminder that despite modeling a clinical lab setting in school, there are distinct behavioral roles between student and teacher as versus work colleague or boss. Visualizing these boundries is important.

I learned that CTE really does exceed the word technical. It is a long, historical partnership between education and career readiness to meet societal need. I also learned that there are key attributes that characterize "high quality CTE" that are essentially a quality assurance map for program development and implementation.

I use all the positivity traits outside of the classroom too!
