COURSE CONTENT SUMMARY:
This program offers a sequence of courses that provides coherent and rigorous content aligned with challenging academic standards and relevant technical knowledge and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers in the Hospitality & Tourism career cluster; provides technical skill proficiency, and includes competency-based applied learning that contributes to the academic knowledge, higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills, and occupation-specific skills, and knowledge of all aspects of the Hospitality & Tourism career cluster.
The content includes but is not limited to coursework that prepares students for employment in the hospitality & tourism industry as reservation and transportation agents, travel destination specialists, tour operators, transportation attendants, cruise ship consultants, or to provide supplemental training for those persons previously or currently employed in these occupations. This program includes components on planning, management, finance, technical and production skills, underlying principles of technology, labor issues, community issues, and health, safety, and environmental issues.
Since this course is conducted as a business, with students as employees, class/project participation and performance will heavily affect grades – as in business, students must be present to complete daily graded class work.

Student can contact me to work in the classroom or request additional assistance. I will gladly schedule a time which is mutually convenient.
CLASSROOM AND TEACHER EXPECTATIONS
My expectations for students are very simple. Take responsibility for your own actions and be respectful to classmates and teacher. This classroom is run in a very professional and businesslike manner and requires an honest effort by the student. I expect students to be on time for class ready to work every day. Students will be held responsible for their actions and must learn to become self-reliant. I am very willing to help students, but only after they help themselves and put forth and honest effort.
