CTE is alive and well at Lakeshore High School! We are very excited to offer a new program in Education called Teacher Cadet. This class is for students who are interested in a teaching career at the elementary or secondary levels. The class is taught by veteran teacher, Katie Woodard. The class meets formally once a week in their classroom at the high school and the other days the students are at area schools with a mentor teacher assisting in their classroom. This is a year-long class and Lakeshore will be accepting students from other districts beginning in the 2017-2018 school year.

In the month of February, we are given the opportunity to celebrate the nation's Presidents, Black History Month, and even St. Valentine's Day-but did you know that we are also celebrating National Career and Technical Education (CTE) month? Nationally, CTE programs are ever changing to meet the country's education and skill needs. These programs are creating an educational environment that combines core academics with real-world application. CTE currently touches the lives of 14 million students in 1,300 public high schools and 1,700 two-year colleges nationwide. At its core, the mission is to prepare students for success in college and careers by helping them develop the skills, technical knowledge, academic rigor, and real-world experience for high-skill, high-demand, and highly successful careers.
