Hello. Welcome to my class. I hope you are ready to have some fun and learn a lot about technology. Let's face it, technology is in every facet of our lives, so no matter what you plan to do in the future you can bet technology will play a big part.
Let me tell you a little about me. I grew up right here in Candler. I attended Pisgah Elementary and I graduated from Enka High School in 1982. I love spending time with my family. I love to travel. I collect lighthouses and the more lighthouses I can visit and climb the better. I have a golden retriever whose name is Sir Currituck (after the Currituck Lighthouse, I call him Tucker for short) and Bodie (you got it, after the Bodie Lighthouse)
I received an associate degree in Office Technology/Data Processing from Asheville/Buncombe Community College. I worked as a computer operator on several different public jobs. Ten years after graduating, in 1992, I found myself back at Enka High School working in the Attendance Office. It was when I started working with the young people here at Enka I realized I would really love to teach. I went back to school at night. I earned my Bachelor Degree in Business Administration from Mars Hill College and my teaching certification from N.C. State and East Carolina University. I began teaching in 2003. I now have a Masters Degree in Instructional Technology/Computer Specialist from Appalachian State University.
I've worked at Enka High School a total of 24 years now. I never realized how wonderful teaching could be. I look forward to seeing you in class. I am also a Junior Class Sponsor. So if you have any questions about prom or coupon book sales just let me know.
