Career & Technical Education Symposium

Embracing the Education Revolution

June 15, 2021



It’s been an unprecedented year in education. CTE teachers have juggled various modes of teaching and learning. Students have struggled with learning CTE concepts remotely. In the meantime, we’ve had to revolutionize and modernize our practices on the fly.
Looking back, we’ve learned, grown, and become more flexible. Looking forward, the goal of the 2021 Region 4 Career & Technical Education Symposium is to take all the good we’ve learned during this unconventional year to reach, teach, and prepare more students for post-high school success.



Special opening address by Kirven Tillis, CTE Coordinator at Barbers Hill ISD!
