As a business teacher at Franklin-Simpson High School I spend my days teaching a variety of business related classes. 2013-14 Courses: Advanced Computer Applications (business co-op), Advanced Multimedia (second through forth year newspaper and yearbook studetns), Computer Applications (leading to IC3 certification), Financial Literacy, Leadership Dynamics, and Multimedia (first year newspaper and yearbook students). Other course experience: Accounting and Finance Foundations, Accounting II, Business Communication, Business Law, Business Principles, Career Pathways, Desktop Publishing and Personal Finance.
Our department offers students two career pathways, Administrative Support Services and Business Multimedia. To become career ready in either, students must complete at least three credits and obtain their IC3 certification. For more information on either program or becoming career ready, please contact me. Our IC3 certificates can also count toward career readiness in IT programs here at the high school and can count toward technology credits through KCTCS.
Advising the high school yearbook and newspaper staff is another job I take great pride in. We meet daily in room 129 learning business strategies to promote our book and paper and raise money to reduce costs for students. Students explore their creative side through the use of design concepts in relation to page layout and photography and strengthen their writing skills as we work to produce our most journalistically sound books and papers to date. Check out my staff pages for more information on each publication.
As far as education goes, I am National Board Certified in Career and Technical Education and hold my Masters of Arts in Education, specifically Secondary Education with an emphasis in Business and Marking, as well as my Bachelors of Science Degree in Business and Marketing Education from Western Kentucky University (Go Hilltoppers!). I am also a graduate of Crittenden County High School (Go Big Blue!)
