About the Teacher Series
The first series in the Arizona CTE Leadership Continuum is the Teacher Series. The Teacher Series is designed to provide all CTE teachers with professional development opportunities for advancing their careers. New CTE teachers move in a very intentional progression from a provisional status to a Standard Certificated Teacher through an array of courses designed to provide teachers with the skills they need to be successful as an instructor.
The Teacher Series is designed to provide teachers with the skills they will need to successfully navigate not only the CTE classroom, but the CTE laboratory, work-based learning and CTE student organizations as well. This is good teacher training.
The courses are offered throughout the state and provide opportunities for university credit through the University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University. Arizona Department of Education credit is also available for all courses in this series. These credits enable a teacher to move from provisional to standard CTE certification.
