Separate License for Engineers is Not Needed

As a 28 year Career and Technical Education (CTE) professional educator (administrator and former teacher), I am not in favor of a separate license for engineers. There are already routes for professionals to enter teaching.  Technology Engineering Education teachers are in high demand and it is difficult to find enough applicants for current positions.  Adding separate licencse for engineers will hinder rather than help our dire situation.
