Career and Technical Education Teacher Professional Development Update

The Texas Education Agency will host four regional convenings to provide professional development for Career and Technical Education teachers. These trainings will prepare CTE teachers with enhanced classroom management skills, new instructional strategies, an exploration of different learning styles, and a deep dive into TEKS and program standards.  

The CTE Teacher PD developers at ESC 20 recognize the effect COVID has had on each classroom, including the strain that the substitute shortage across the state has placed on school districts and charters. The regional design of these convenings reflects a concerted effort to shorten travel while still providing quality professional development. We hope you can join us as we partner with you in your region.
