    Before finding a home at SAHS, I worked in advertising as a Graphic Designer,
    receiving my bachelor's degree in Graphic Design from Appalachian State. While in advertising, I created package design, magazine ads, logos, product brochures, flyers, restaurant menus, book covers, websites, etc. Prior to teaching in the classroom, I was a teacher assistant in our exceptional children's department for 8 years. I have been coaching the girls basketball team here since 2002 and I also co-advise the Fellowship of Christian Athlete's group as well as Unified Champions (Project Unify). I completed my teaching licensure through NC State.

    When I'm not at school in the classroom, helping out with FCA, Unified Champions or on the basketball court, you can probably find me near the track helping out with our cross country and track & field teams, (my daughter used to run for both), or around the baseball field watching my son play. Away from school, I appreciate my family time with my husband and 2 awesome kids. We enjoy road trips to see friends or family, visiting Boone, NC (for lunch and candy runs at the Mast General Store) or visiting the coast for some saltwater fishing. My daughter, Sarah, recently graduated from Appalachian State and my son, MK, is a Junior here at SAHS.

    I'm looking forward to a great semester!

    What is CTE (Career & Technical Education)?

    Career and technical education gives you the chance to gain a deeper understanding of academic concepts. You can also learn technical skills. You can study fields ranging from agriculture and computer art, to health and human services, to computer programming and computer science, to engineering and business.


    What are the benefits of CTE?

    CTE classes help you connect what you’re learning to the real world. It can help you gain key skills to help you get a job after you graduate. It can also be a great way to explore career options and meet the people who work in them. You might be able to earn college credit in high school. That can save you time and money later on.

    Research also shows that students in career and technical education programs are more likely to graduate from high school than those who don’t.


    Who can take CTE classes?

    You can take CTE classes in grades 9 - 12. Talk with your high school counselor or any CTE teacher to learn about your options.
