Woodrow Wilson High School Teacher Selected to Participate In Prestigious Fellowship Program

Karen Roberts, a career and technical education teacher at Woodrow Wilson High School, is one of 24 teachers nationwide selected to participate in the National Leadership Fellowship Program for the Association for Career & Technical Education (ACTE).

The Fellowship Program is a one-year commitment from January 1 through December 31, 2021. Each of ACTE’s five regions and the majority of divisions are represented in the program. In addition to more experienced educators, this year’s fellowship class again includes a cohort of new professionals, geared towards those with two to five years of Career and Technical Education (CTE) experience. During her fellowship, Ms. Roberts will blog about the importance of CTE programming; serve on a CTE task force that will address issues at the state, region and national levels; and work with the other ACTE Fellows to present a program session at the CareerTech VISION Conference, to name a few of the duties.

Ms. Roberts has served Woodrow Wilson High School for 13 years. She teaches nutrition and wellness and also serves as the sponsor of several clubs and organizations including: Key Club, Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), Youth Service America (YSA), Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP60), Violence Alcohol and Drug Awareness (VADA), the National Youth Leadership Council, and Youth of Virginia Speak Out About Traffic Safety (YOVASO).

The Association for Career & Technical Education (ACTE) is the nation’s largest not-for-profit association committed to the advancement of education that prepares youth and adults for successful careers. ACTE represents the community of CTE professionals, including educators, administrators, researchers, school counselors, guidance and career development professionals and others at all levels of education.
