Today (Saturday, March 25, 2017) was my last day of classroom studies for my Career Technical Education teaching credential. Neither CSU Sacramento, nor the Sacramento County Office of Education offer this credential program any longer. As such, I enrolled in the Ventura County Office of Education Career Technical Education teaching credential program. They offered a Santa Cruz cohort class that I was able to enroll in; thereby decreasing my commute from Ventura to Santa Cruz. This was my third and final trip to the Santa Cruz training facility.
While my Adult Education teaching credential covers the same subject matter as my Career Technical Education teaching credential, I feel that the additional training and insights I have received will help make me a better educator and that in turn should result in a better educational experience for my students. My credential should be clear by this summer!
