History of CTE in business and its influence on my philosophy
A teacher is charged with the responsibility of imparting knowledge and skills that give students the ability to make a positive impact on the world.

Since the introduction of CTE programs, the special needs education has grown immensely (Barry & Leather, 2012). There has been a diversification of career programs such as information technology, biotechnology, hospitality, engineering among others, giving the students an opportunity to join different fields of expertise (Barry & Leather, 2012).
