In this episode,  we will learn how CTE teachers prepare and organize their classroom for a new school year, we speak with some teachers about what they do over the summer to prepare themselves and their classrooms for another year of teaching and learning.

Here are the questions that were asked of each teacher about their perspectives on effective ways for CTE teachers to prepare for the upcoming school year.

  1. How and what do you do to prepare yourself for the upcoming school year?
  2. What are the activities and strategies you use during the first week of school to engage your students and prepare them for a successful school year?
  3. How and what things do you do to involve parents at the beginning of the school year
  4. How do you involve the upperclassmen or higher levels of students to help your new students assimilate to their new classroom?
