Idaho PTECH Network
My name is Payton Grover and I am a junior at Melba High School and am in my second semester with the PTECH IT program. This quote sums up my PTECH experience so far “Opportunities multiply as they are seized.” PTECH provides an opportunity to expand and thrive in a marketable field. Before PTECH I really didn’t know what a marketable field was. When I began I thought that I would just take a few classes and graduate with a certificate in the information technology field, or computer programming. I was not expecting the support and the other opportunities they have provided for me.
First of all I’m enjoying the field that I had never thought about going into, it is an expansive field and I am finding the parts that interest me. I know I do not want to go into tech support, but programming or web design. I have found this out through exposure to classes and we went on a day trip in Boise. We had the opportunity to go to Clearwater and HP to tour their workspaces and all of the insanely cool technological tools that they have. If I can quote my fellow PTECH student, Evan Butler while at HP said, “This is better than Disneyland,” Now while I wouldn’t go that far, it was incredible and they are both places I will look into in the future.
