Career and Technical Education is my passion. As a product of a high school career technical program, I understand the importance of our classes. I attended Athens University, where I earned a Bachelor's of Science in Career and Technical Education. I started teaching in 2010.  I am beyond grateful to call Pike County High School my home.
