In early February, the CTE/STEM team hosted the inaugural Future Educator Day in partnership with Central Oregon Community College. Students from across the region joined to learn about the many opportunities in education through hands-on activities. In addition, a panel discussion provided opportunities for students to interact with the educators.

We had a variety of booths to display ways for students to engage in educational opportunities beyond the traditional K-12 setting with partners such as: Camp Tamarack, Pawsitive Choices, Boys and Girls Club, HDESD EI/ECSE, Central Oregon STEM Hub, and Neighborhood Impact. We had a teacher recognition booth for students to recognize the educators that have had a positive impact in their lives.

We appreciate the partnership with Amy Howell and Angie Cole from COCC, Joe Devine and team from HDESD, and Jenny Faircloth and the team with the Early Childhood program. For questions, contact Brook Rich at
