Zachary Larsen: Future Health Science CTE Teacher
Occupational Goal: Health Science CTE Teacher
“My occupational goal is to become a CTE Teacher in Health Science Education/Health Technology. I was first introduced to the health sciences field while attending Lone Peak High School. As a sophomore I received special administrative permission to join an EMS class typically offered only to juniors and seniors. My EMS teacher had such an enthusiasm for the subject that I found myself wanting to take other health science classes. I also found that I enjoyed the unique hands-on learning environment she provided. This teacher helped me discover that I could take my interest in health sciences and teach others. She helped me realize that I could take two interests and make them a career.” –Zachary Larsen, Lone Peak High School
