Vicki Leifer graduated from the University of Toledo and attended Eastern Washington University to complete her masters degree. She is a member of the Washington Association for Career and Technical Education and the Washington Association of Career and Technical Administrators. Vicki believes that CTE is a vital component in helping students find their passion, follow their dreams, and provide a competitive advantage for the future. CTE programs provide an excellent pathway to help students discover how their individual skill sets fit into the “puzzle of life” in a meaningful way. Every student has a unique set of interests and skills that can be utilized to improve and drive their education. Vicki is an emphatic believer that CTE courses provide distinct opportunities that can successfully meet the needs of the diverse range of students we are preparing for the future.
