What Is A Non-Traditional Career?

When you hear "Non-traditional" career, it generally applies to careers your gender (boy or girl) does not "traditionally" go into. For girls these broad areas involve technology, trades such as construction and welding, and public services such as police and fire. For boys the areas involve early childhood education such as elementary school teachers, and healthcare careers in the field of nursing. There are many advantages to non-traditional careers, such as the ability to stand out in a field of applicants, and the fact that non-trad careers often pay exceptionally well!

Beaverton Culinary Arts Teacher Named "Teacher of the Year"

We want to offer our most enthusiastic congratulations to Lora Wells, head of the Culinary Arts program at Westview High School in Beaverton, Oregon, for achieving "Teacher of the Year"! Westview participated in the annual Oregon Prostart High School Culinary Championships.

Westview is the only high school in Beaverton's school district that currently offers a culinary arts program.


To read more about the championships, and see what high school came home with top honors (along with the breathtaking menu they served up in less than 60 minutes), see the Oregonian's article here:


Make it a great week!
