CTE Month Week 3: Celebrating Students in Health Sciences, Human Services, Law/Public Safety, Education
As part of Career and Technical Education Month, the Kane County Regional Office of Education and all nine public school districts in the county are recognizing the outstanding work students and teachers are doing in the categories of Health Sciences, Human Services, Law/Public Safety and Education.
The students participating in these classes often are the frontline workers and hometown heroes of the next generation.
In the video presented here, Dana Alterie, a health science teacher at the Fox Valley Career Center, expresses her feelings about the programs that have helped shape many of the nurses who today are making a difference in the battle against COVID-19.
“I am honored to be part of a student’s journey into the field of medicine and enthused to see the passion of our future healthcare providers,” she said.
CTE Month is a celebration of career and technical education in Kane County schools, where students learn valuable trades to help prepare them for real-world jobs.
