Jennifer’s story

Posted by on November 30, 2015

Jens-children.jpgEveryone has goals and dreams that seem out of reach. A short year ago that was me. I am a single mother of four children, and at one point I felt as if my life was at a standstill. Twelve months ago I lost my job, my vehicle, and my place to live. A feeling of hopelessness had set in.  Sleeping on a couch and working my life away had become my new normal.  After a few months, I got a car and continued to work my long hours in a back breaking factory.  This was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

In February of 2015, a friend told me about the College for Technical Education (CTE). I decided to take a chance and schedule a visit. A week later I was starting a new path in life. On Feb. 28th, I entered the Business Office Administration program. Nervous and anxious I took my seat around strangers, who would eventually become family. They were my friends, supports, and critics all in the same. As my nine month program went on, we laughed together, cried together, and bonded. My biggest supporter was my teacher, Kimberly York. She had been in many of the same difficult situations that her students had been through. At one time, she was struggling just like me to get through school. Mrs. York was there not only for school, but for personal problems as well. She became like a second mother and still is a big part of my life. On October 29, 2015, I finished my program with a certificate in Business Office Administration and a 4.0 GPA. I did it not only for me, but for my children as well.

You will find that the Business Office Administration (BOA) program at the College for Technical Education (CTE) is one of the most comprehensive programs for business office knowledge that can be offered and achieved in as little as 9 months. The program includes introduction to office technology, Microsoft Office products, the basics of accounting and finance, personal and professional development, business communications and a capstone class. The capstone class falls at the very end of the program and allows students to get real world experience either through office work on the campus or through an internship with a local business.

Do not worry if your computer experience is minimal, we will work with you to get you on the right track! And, our classroom works together as teams in every subject, so together you can gain understanding.

Our classroom will also become your daytime family. It is a place of learning, but also a place where we learn more about ourselves and others. If you are considering a career in the business world, consider the Business Office Administration program at CTE!
