Business & Technical Education

Welcome to the Business & Technical Education Department

To The Parents and Students of the Business and Technical Education Department at Meadowcreek High School, We are a department of professionals whose goal is to prepare our students for the work place of tomorrow.  Towards that end, we expose students to a variety of experiences that encompass not only technical skills but also, marry those skills to soft skills such as ethics, dependability, and loyalty that builds the workforce for our future.   Additionally, we are concerned with collaborating with core coursework to build the skills necessary to be successful in all classes, on all assessments, and in whatever endeavor a student plans to pursue after leaving this institution.  We pledge to do our part to give each student a high level, rigorous experience in exploring career pathways in an industry certified program.  It is our intention to identify individual strengths and weaknesses and to help each student move towards a goal of professional representation with communication and written skills that will enable them to positively present themselves in any professional or educational environment.  

We ask that students come prepared to be fully engaged in class and the work we will do together.  Parents can support these efforts by making sure students are present each and every day, and that students come prepared to work and learn.  Our classes require that students are active:  reading, writing, speaking, and thinking daily.  We ask that parents encourage their students to explore web based resources each evening and weekend (and across each break) to reinforce the work we are doing in the classroom.

As Business and Technical Education teachers, we are excited to share our professional and educational experiences with each student who becomes a part of the Meadowcreek family and look forward to the work we will do together to help each student become more successful in reaching their future goals in their educational pursuits and beyond.  Please do not hesitate to contact any teacher if there is ever any question how we can better help a student achieve his or her literacy goals.



The mission statement and program philosophy for the Business Education Program at Meadowcreek High School is to promote and support an innovative educational environment where students can acquire knowledge and skills that will help them become productive citizens in the community and contribute to be life-long learners.
