February is Career & Technical Education (CTE) Month, & SHS is proud to recognize our CTE teachers & courses! One of our CTE offerings at SHS is Internship. While students can do an internship in any area of CTE, Mrs. Abana Nevens oversees the program and works with the students. Internship is a practical and supervised job experience designed to assist students to successfully transition from school to work. The Internship course is paid or unpaid experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learning in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields. Students can use Internship to gain their 3rd level class in a program of study if their internship is in that area.

February is Career & Technical Education (CTE) Month, & SHS is proud to recognize our CTE teachers & courses! Mr. Charlie Kinser teaches classes tied to operating the Yellowjacket Arena, two of which are Small Business Operations and Audio/Visual Tech & Film. These courses are taught in the Yellowjacket Arena & YJ Store, which provides hands-on experience for our students. Small Business Operations is designed for students interested in learning how to manage a small business, as well as learning the ways of the American business enterprise system. The course includes a study of various forms of ownership, internal organization, management functions, and financing as they relate to business. The course content focuses on the concepts and practices of small business ownership and management, all while practicing these skills through the day-to-day operations in the YJ Store, both on campus and online. Audio/Visual Tech & Film is designed for students to apply artistic talent to practical problems and learn visual arts principles that prepare them with skills and techniques to work in any number of creative design and entertainment fields. Students in arts, A-V technology and communications learn and practice skills that prepare them for diverse post-high school education and training opportunities, from apprenticeships and two-year college programs to four-year college and graduate programs. Student work can be seen throughout the arena during all athletic and special events. The hands-on experience of these classes prepares Sheridan High School students for success!
