In honor of CTE month (February), PCPS would like to highlight the CTE teachers throughout our division! In each highlight, you will learn about the courses they teach, their years of experience in and out of the classroom, what drew them to teaching and the cool projects their CTE classes are completing! To them, we say "thank you" for all that you do each day to bring Career and Technical Education alive for our students!

Years of Experience - 16 teaching, 25 as RN
What drew you to teaching?
Mr. Secrist convinced me to try education. I thought if I didn't like
this then I can always go back to working as a nurse. 16 years later and I am
still here. I enjoy watching student growth from the start of class until
What's your favorite thing about teaching?
Working with former students that are nurses. I enjoy seeing how much
they've grown into their nursing roles as educators, advocates and teachers.
