FUN FACT FRIDAY: Dedicated Educators Drive CTE Success

Career and Technical Education courses give students a head start on the path to successful careers, often with the opportunity to earn college credit in high school. Jordan School District now offers 25 CTE courses at our JATC campuses.

The programs are successful in large part due to dedicated educators and JSD has some of the very best. We are proud of our latest award-winning CTE teachers.

  • Melinda Mansouri, Web and Mobile App Design Teacher, (JATC South) is Teacher of the Year for the Utah Association for Career and Technical Education. Ms. Mansouri is the author of the Advanced Website Creation Curriculum for Utah, a new course that is being added to the CTE course listings. She is described as a teacher who inspires students to be their very best every day.
  • Sue Taylor, Dental Assisting Teacher, (JATC North) is the Lifetime Achievement Award winner for the Utah Association for Career and Technical Education. Ms. Taylor was recognized for her outstanding contributions and service to CTE and her approach of returning to the basics, focusing on dental lab work.

Congratulation to these amazing educators!
