CTE teachers are in high demand.   As the number of elective opportunities increase in today’s schools there is a need for teachers to fill the openings. Like any other teaching profession, the pay and benefits offer an appealing opportunity. CTE instructors attend college in preparation for the classroom, but the courses they take are specifically designed to teach the secondary CTE curriculum. These are the same types of courses many students thrive in while in high school. CTE instructors learn the teaching profession while developing their skills in a variety of vocational fields.
