CTE Teach Workshops

Professional Development Workshops for New (and veteran!) Teachers

The Butte County CTE Department participates each year in a special grant-funded project known as "CTE Teach." It is designed to provide extra support to our CTE / Adult program teachers, particularly those in the first few years of their teaching careers. We also provide workshops exploring different topics in education. These provide us with a fun, low-key way to address teaching topics of interest to you as well as a way to get to know the other teachers in the department.


The days and times for all workshops this year are Wednesdays from 3:30pm - 4:30pm. Below are descriptions and dates for each. Please RSVP to the ones you would like to attend.


Feel free to share this with a friend or colleague! These workshops are free and open to all.
