My name is Kacie Anglin and I am the art/graphic design teacher at Rye High School. In the last several years we have been working towards adding in great opportunities for the students here at Rye High School, which include CTE (Career and Technical Education). With CTE we also have to include a CTSO (Career and Technical Student Organization), where “students are preparing to become productive citizens and assume roles of leadership in their communities. These organizations provide a unique program of career and leadership development, motivation, and recognition for secondary and post-secondary students.” (ACTE) These programs are an integral part of CTE and they help students develop so many different skills.
I would like to take advantage of an important and unique opportunity to support STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education at our school and give Anna this opportunity that she has earned. This year, from June 21st to June 25th, in Orlando, Florida, our Technology Student Association (TSA) chapter can attend a premier educational event. I would like Anna and I to attend this conference, as this is an opportunity to make an investment in our STEM initiative. This, of course, is a costly trip, but well worth it.
The 2017 national TSA conference has received National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) approval for student contests and activities that motivate students to be creative and demonstrate excellence. In addition to promoting student participation in STEM-oriented competitive events, the conference offers invaluable teacher exposure to the latest teaching and learning best practices. My participation in this program complements our school’s objectives as well as my professional development goals. More information about the conference is available on TSA’s conference website.
Thank you, in advance, for your consideration of helping Anna and I attend the competition.
