Secondary School Career & Technical Education (CTE) Teachers

Teach what you love to do!

High school CTE teachers specialize in helping students prepare for future careers by providing them with hands-on experience in their field of study. Whether it's healthcare or mechanics, learning "hard" skills while still in high school increases the chances that a student will go on to pursue a technical profession in the future. Often times bringing industry experience, CTE teachers work both theoretically and practically, creating challenges that their students are likely to encounter in the real-world. CTE teachers can take pride in knowning they help grow the skilled workforce that employers need.

CTE Instructors will be in demand over the next ten years to prepare a more advanced workforce.

What does it take to be a CTE Educator?

Aval: Public Service

Career and Technical Education teachers must have at least a bachelor's degree and have years of hands-on experience in the area they are going to be teaching. Depending on the field being taught, employers may prefer licensure or certification in that field as well (e.g. Nursing classes would need a teacher who was an RN or LVN). Most important is the desire to share experiences and teach the students.

To be any kind of teacher in Texas, the teacher must have their teaching certification from the State Board of Educator Certification.

Los programas alternativos certificados resultan atractivos para quienes inicialmente no hayan optado por seguir una carrera docente.
