Tedor honored as WA-FACSE Administrator of the Year

Dan Tedor, Director of Career and Technical Education (CTE), was honored as the Washington Family and Consumer Sciences Educators (WA-FACSE) Administrator of the Year! The award recognizes administrative CTE professionals who have demonstrated leadership in ensuring teacher and student success and have made significant contributions toward innovative, unique and effective CTE and Family and Consumer Sciences Programs.

Tedor was presented with the award at the Washington Association for Career and Technical Education Conference in Spokane. He was nominated by his colleagues, who wrote:

“Dan has been an exemplary CTE Director. In his first year at LSSD alone, he was able to completely design and develop our CTE Program Pathways, a new graduation requirement from OSPI. He is constantly advocating for our CTE teachers and students. He looks for creative ways to spend our funds to promote student learning and professional development for our teachers. He continuously looks for innovative ideas and cutting-edge equipment necessary to keep pace with ever-changing technology and industry standards. His pursuit to provide CTE Dual Credit opportunities and Industry Recognized Credentials is relentless. He takes on new tasks that will provide opportunities for students even if it means more work for himself.

Not only does Dan work to enhance the programs at Lake Stevens School District. He also serves as the Northern Region WACTA Representative and leads the meetings for the Snohomish County CTE Directors. In addition, he often mentors other CTE Directors who are new in their roles. He is a valuable asset and we are so lucky to have him at LSSD!”

Tedor oversees the district’s CTE and STEM curriculum, programming and instruction. He joined the district in 2020 after serving at the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction as a statewide STEM Program Coordinator.
