“CTE Pathways has impacted me in ways I cannot even begin to explain. The Pathway I chose to follow was the Business Management Pathway. This helped me decide which classes to take that would help me in the future and in obtaining my goal. Because of that one meeting with my [school] counselor and choosing a Pathway, I now have a plan and many goals to go along with it.”

    I think it’s great these business education students have such strong goals and have a firm grip of their post-secondary pathway. Business classes are the best!! Of course, I’m a little biased since I was a business teacher 🙂
