Back in 1999, I began teaching Physical Education and coaching basketball in East Cleveland at Mayfair Elementary and Shaw High School. I had just purchased my first cell phone, rarely used email, and I knew hardly anything about “vocational education programs.” Fast forward 20 years and it is astounding how much things have changed. It seems like every high school student and adult has a cell phone, I receive and send over 100 emails per day, and most importantly I have fallen in love with Career Technical Education. Welcome to Excel TECC, the best consortium of high schools and CTE programs in the state of Ohio. Enrollment is at its highest ever for our programs, we continue to strengthen our college articulation agreements with local community colleges and universities, and students continue to have authentic, real-world learning experiences through their Excel TECC program. I encourage all of our current students and parents to monitor the Excel TECC website and twitter handle for pertinent information and updates throughout the school year. To all of our sophomore students across our 11 high schools, I want to encourage you to enroll in an Excel TECC program—it will truly change the direction of your high school career for the better! Should you have any questions about any of our programs or events, please do not hesitate to contact me or arrange a visit. Best of luck to everyone in the 2019-2020 school year.
