I’ll start by apologizing for yet another long hiatus on the blog. Work in my office has been busy, but engaging and continually interesting. I intend to post on my new adventures as an instructional coach in the world of Career and Technical Education (CTE) soon, including describing some of literacy efforts and how my office reviews instruction and experiences in our college and career readiness academy schools.
In the meantime, November will be a busy, busy month where I will find myself in Texas three times for three different conferences!
First up is the National Career Academies Coalition (NCAC) in Houston. I’ve attended before and look forward to attending this year, especially as my focus on academy schools has broadened in my new role.
Next is the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) in Houston as well. I will receive my Teacher of Excellence Award in person. Still feeling very honored to be awarded and recognized!
Finally, I’ll be at the Association of Career and Technical Education (ACTE) in San Antonio. This will be my first time attending, but we have a few of my district’s teachers presenting, so I look forward to supporting them and seeing CTE on an even larger, national scale!
Hope to see a few of you at one of these as well. Remember to follow me on Twitter @theprofjones
