Region 15 CTE Weekly Update
June 22 - July 3, 2020
“I want to vacation so long, I forget all my passwords.” – Unknown
It's nearing the end of June. I hope you all are doing well. I am wrapping up a few things before I take a few days off. I don't have an exotic destination planned for vacation, just time to divert focus off of work and all the uncertainty of when school will start and what it will look like. I know I keep saying this, but I hope you are carving out time for yourself this summer. All this uncertainty definitely has me feeling very....well I really don't know how to describe it.
I hope you will be able to utilize the workshops scheduled for this summer and attend one of your content area conferences. Please know that as of right now we are still scheduled to offer face to face trainings. Be mindful that at any time this could change. I am working on the paperwork to be a NCCER sponsor and hope to have everything in place to be a full fledged NCCER Master Trainer and Sponsor before the end of summer. I hope to have a training before school starts if at all possible. If you are coming to Region 15 for a face to face workshop, Region 15 requests you wear a face mask.
I will be taking a break from work June 25-26 and June 29-30. ESC 15 is closed for July 4th holiday July 1-3. If you want to look back on any of these newsletters please visit www.esc15.net/cte
