Welcome to our new MWEC CTE web site.
For my first news blog I would like to highlight our Ag Professional Learning Community or PLC. Under the amazing leadership of Nichole Eskelsen, our Ag group has already met several times and, through strategic planning, has come up with a professional development plan for the year.
On December the 3rd the Ag PLC came together, and one of their own, Mitch Coleman from Dayton High School, shared his expertise in building several hydroponic systems. Ag teachers first learned about how the different systems functioned and then had a chance to construct their own and subsequently take them home at the conclusion of the training.
Next, the Ag teachers had a chance to train with Chemeketa’s own Gail Gredler on propagation techniques. Each teacher was able to take their personal creations home with them. Every teacher was very enthusiastic about the training they had received.
MWEC has four other fantastic PLC groups meeting in a similar fashion this year. I will continue to update our news blog to reflect what each group is up to.
If you have news stories please contact Ed Woods to have them featured for the rest of our region to enjoy.
