2019 CACTE CareerTech SUMMIT SCHEDULE

There will be a mobile app this year instead of a paper program. CACTE is using “HelloCrowd”, so many of you are familiar with it from CTSO conferences. It will allow us to make announcements in real time, save trees and save money. Stay tuned for more details about the mobile app.

If you like to have a paper schedule, please print this schedule for yourself. Personally, I’d wait until closer to July 14 – things are still changing, but this is the schedule as it is on Flag Day, June 14! 🙂

Nominee for PRESIDENT-ELECT: Jessica Teal

Three Year Term – president-elect, president, past president: 2019-2022

CACTE President-Elect Nominee, Jessica Teal

BRIEF BIO: Jessica Teal graduated Cum Laude from Colorado State University in the Spring of 2016. Teal just completed her third year as a Family & Consumer Sciences Teacher at Windsor High School, where she taught a plethora of FCS courses such as Fashion Design, Interior Design, Child and Adolescent Development, Relationships, and Life Management. Jessica became involved in FCCLA as Chapter President in high school through her FCS courses and continues to help students get involved in FCCLA at the local and district level. Currently serving as the CATFACS Division President, Jessica is eager to transfer her leadership skills to CACTE as a whole. Prior to servings on the CATFACS Executive Board, Jessica also served as the Secretary and Membership Chair. Outside of school, Jessica enjoys attending conferences geared toward innovation and technology, sewing, spending time with friends and family, attending concerts, traveling, and crafting new projects.

COMMITMENT TO CACTE’S MISSION

Division Membership

  • As CACTE President-Elect, I would create a system for divisions to nominate their peers for their great work, share this with the membership committee and post to social media.
  • Collaborate with division leadership to schedule time to meet with their boards once during the year to open communication, share leadership opportunities, and support needs.
  • Work with Dawn Mallette to present and promote the importance of professional organizations (CACTE) to CSU students in Methods Class. 

Professional Leadership Development

  • As CACTE President-Elect, I would promote a volunteer mentorship program among divisions for newer teachers in the profession for instructional support/leadership support through board positions and ways to get involved. This could also support divisions who are in need of leadership and make it a priority to help the find leaders within their divisions.
  • Work with Summit Assistant to reach out to vendors as strategic partners within CACTE conference. I would highlight apprenticeship resources such as Career Wise and other work-based learning opportunities as strategic partners.
  • As CACTE President-Elect, I promote best practices as PD components at CACTE CareerTech Summit to promote opportunities for cross curricular connections, communications with strategic partners, industry professionals, etc.
  • Promote industry connections at CACTE conference and other PD offerings to encourage involvement of industry within our division classrooms and support CTSO projects within the classroom. I have used industry professionals as evaluator panels for projects within Interior Design (Catering Kitchen Remodel) and Fashion (Virtual Blogging with Industry) and Design A Line, etc.

Advocacy and Awareness

  • Help strengthen the connection between research, community partners, and instructional practice.
  • Develop newsletters to legislators on CACTE and division happenings.
  • As CACTE President-Elect, I would work to strengthen the legislative committee to nominate individuals within each division to identify legislation and make important decisions reflecting our voices and needs as an association. In addition to this, promoting a letter writing campaign from divisions to legislators during CTE week.

Nominee for SECRETARY: Nat Sobin

Two Year Term: 2019-2021

CACTE Secretary Nominee, Nat Sobin

BRIEF BIO: Nathaniel (Nat) Sobin is a CTE Instructor and Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Grant Project Director in Widefield School District 3 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Nat’s background is in engineering where he has practiced as a structural engineer prior to his career in STEM education. Nat received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2013 and is a licensed professional engineer (PE) in the state of Colorado. Nat has taught a variety of CTE-STEM
courses over his teaching career and continually works to develop and grow a “K through NASA”
approach to STEM education and 21st century technology skills for all. He is also an active, voting
member on the Engineering and Technology Education (ETED) division policy board of ACTE.

COMMITMENT TO CACTE’S MISSION

I believe that I am a good candidate for CACTE Secretary in that I have been intimately involved with CTE
at the local level for several years and am now more involved at the national level. Moreover, I believe
in the mission and purpose of CTE and have seen the good it brings to school districts and students. In
my time with CTE I have taught a wide variety of CTE courses (exclusively) for 5 years, developed CTE
CTSOs from the ground up at my school and have brought them to competition for multiple years, have
participated in the CCCS curriculum development project team for STEM/CTE under the direction of
former CCCS STEM, Arts and IT Director David Barnes at the state level and have now become an active
member of ACTE where I am now a voting member of the Engineering and Technology Education
Division (ETED) Policy Board. I have a passion for CTE and specifically for the STEM field where I am a
believer and evangelist for the “K through NASA” approach to STEM education. I believe that well
aligned programs, courses, and people can continually ameliorate the STEM education process, making
it more accessible to all students as a requisite 21st century skillset, regardless of their chosen career
path (an interdisciplinary approach). I would like to get the chance to share this mindset, methodology
and knowledge base at the state level as well via a CACTE Board affiliation. I believe that the Secretary
position would be a good starting point for me to begin my CACTE Board affiliation and to make a
lasting, positive contribution to this organization.

PROPOSED BYLAWS CHANGES

You may recall that a major revision of the CACTE Bylaws was approved by the membership at the 2019 CACTE Annual Business Meeting. As with any living document, a few “oops” items were discovered during the year. These proposed Bylaws changes aim to redeem those “oops” items. The CACTE Board voted unanimously to recommend these Bylaws changes to the membership.

You can reference a copy of the current CACTE bylaws HERE! Voting on the proposed Bylaws changes will also happen in a hybrid method. For those members not attending the 2019 CACTE CareerTech Summit or wishing to vote ahead of time, you can vote online (CACTE website) beginning July 1. For those members attending the Summit, you can vote in person Monday all day or Tuesday until noon. BE SURE TO HAVE YOUR MEMBER ID NUMBER HANDY in order to vote! 🙂

SUMMARY OF PROPOSED BYLAWS CHANGES TO CACTE BYLAWS

Article V, Section 3 – OFFICERS, Vacancy

  • Add a sentence “If the office of President becomes vacant, the President-Elect serves as Acting President for the remainder of the President’s term.  The person would then serve his/her own year as President.”
  • RATIONALE: Bylaws told what to do for all officer vacancies except President – oops!

Article VI – ELIGILIBITY, NOMATIONS & ELECTIONS

  • Delete “E” regarding candidates for President-Elect needing to be from a different division than current President-Elect
  • Re-letter F and G to E and F
  • RATIONALE: ACTE used to have same statement in bylaws; removed because felt that experience on Board was most important; this statement can leave CACTE without a president-elect candidate, even if a qualified person is willing to step up

Article VIII, Section 2 – BOARD, Composition

  • Change first sentence to read “The Board shall consist of the CACTE officers, Division Presidents, Division Presidents-Elect and the chairs of CACTE committees.”
  • Add additional sentence “If a committee chair is unable to attend a meeting, he/she may select a representative from the committee as a proxy.
  • RATIONALE: Board needs to be apprised of committee work; hard to do without committee chairs as part of Board; many other state associations use this model.

Article IX, Section 3 – COMMITTEES, Operation

  • Move current 3B to 3C
  • Insert new 3B to read “CACTE Committee chairs shall serve as voting members of the CACTE Board.”
  • RATIONALE: Carries through with CACTE committee chairs serving on the Board.

ACTE POSTSECONDARY FELLOWS – 3 FROM COLORADO!

Colorado ACTE is honored to have two ACTE Postsecondary Leadership Success Fellows and one ECMC Foundation Postsecondary CTE Research Fellow among its members! Congratulations to these 3 and best wishes on your journey throughout your fellowships! We look forward to learning more about your experiences.

POSTSECONDARY LEADERSHIP SUCCESS FELLOWS

ACTE announced its inaugural class of 20 fellows for its 2019 Postsecondary Leadership Success Program at ACTE – Sponsored by the ECMC Foundation (PLSP-ECMCF). The PLSP-ECMCF will support current and aspiring leaders in career and technical education (CTE). The goal is to provide professional and career growth opportunities to the next generation of leaders at nonprofits and postsecondary institutions offering CTE programs.

Georgia Reagan, Emily Griffith Technical College

Reagan is the Manager of Admissions, Recruitment, Concurrent Enrollment and Testing at Emily Griffith Technical College in Denver, Colorado. Georgia is passionate about educational equity and access, college persistence and success, and workforce education. She has eight years of experience in non-profit K12 and postsecondary institutions, and continues to fight for equitable education and job opportunities for all students.

Claire van der Plas, Colorado Mountain College, Leadville

Van der Plas is an Assistant Dean of Instruction at Colorado Mountain College in Leadville, CO. The CTE programs she oversees makes the most of the campus’ unique location and resources by offering programs like Ski Area Operations, Natural Resource Management, Avalanche Science and Geographic Information Systems, in addition to programs like Welding, Electricity and Culinary Arts. Claire has an MFA in Painting from the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and a BA in Political Science from University of Canterbury, New Zealand.

POSTSECONDARY RESEARCH FELLOW

Sixteen research fellows from institutions across the nation have been selected to participate in the CTE Research Program at North Carolina State University–Sponsored by ECMC Foundation. Known as ECMC Foundation Fellows, the researchers selected for this program will participate in two training institutes, webinars on research methods, and a convening focusing on postsecondary CTE. All fellows will complete a research project focusing on postsecondary CTE and address topics including student success, labor market outcomes, business and industry partnerships, work-based learning, apprenticeships, transfer success, completion, and equity. Fellows will also explore other larger societal problems such as how it is less likely for some groups to participate in CTE and have economic mobility. Each research fellow will be paired with a leading CTE researcher to serve as a mentor to support their research during this year-long experience. At the end of the program, fellows will submit the work from their projects for presentation and publication.

Linda Van Doren, Emily Griffith Technical College

 Linda Van Doren is the Director of Instruction and she has over 20 years of experience as a classroom teacher, curriculum developer, teacher trainer, and administrator, and has worked with English language learners, middle, secondary and postsecondary CTE students both in the US and abroad. She serves on multiple committees that support strong CTE and workforce education initiatives and alignment statewide and nationally. Linda is a doctoral student in the Leadership for Educational Equity program at the University of Colorado, Denver, and her research area is on postsecondary CTE instructor credentialing in Colorado. She earned her Master’s Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and her Bachelor’s Degree in Near Eastern Languages and Literatures and Social Studies Education at New York University. Click HERE to see full press release.

Project. Colorado has a tremendous need to hire qualified CTE teachers as the state struggles to fill its talent pipeline during this period of economic growth and historically low unemployment. Currently the state provides a pathway to teacher credentialing that has not been examined for its effectiveness in leading to desired outcomes. The study will examine Colorado’s postsecondary CTE faculty credentialing process in partnership with the Colorado Community College System Office of Career and Technical Education.

CACTE Members Making News!

Tuesday, January 15 was a big day for CTE in the news and at the Capitol! CACTE member Eric Ward testified in support of HB 19-1008 before the House Education Committee. The bill addresses including CTE new facilities/equipment in the use of BEST funds.

And CACTE members Scott Burke, instructor, and Shelley Goerdt, Jeffco CTE Coordinator, made a News 4 Denver story happen with about 3 hours notice! News 4 Political reporter, Shaun Boyd wanted to visit a Skilled Trades class as she was covering HB 19-1008. CACTE connected her to the Geometry in Construction class at Green Mountain High School. Scott’s students did a fabulous job of illustrating why #CTE works wonders, talking about the specific and transferable skills they are learning by building a house for Habitat for Humanity! Here is the link to the story: https://denver.cbslocal.com/2019/01/16/shop-class-state-legislature-green-mountain/

Way to go, Colorado ACTE!
