Welcome Cross Creek High School scholars, parents, and the community to the new 2022-2023 school year!
I am excited to share a few fun facts about myself. I have been teaching in the CTAE program since 1991. My teaching career started at a local comprehensive high school, namely, Lucy Craft Laney Comprehensive High School. I later went to teach in Aiken County at the Career & Technology Center. I taught middle school at Hephzibah Middle for a decade. After growing in my craft and earning my doctorate degree, I left the middle school setting to teach at Westside High School. After being there for five years, I desired to acquire an administrative position in the state of Alaska.
I love motivating those student scholars, whom I have the daily pleasure of helping to shape and mold them into productive citizens. With the new mandates from our presiding Governor, a new law has been adopted to ensure every K-12 student scholar receives a Computer Science education. At one time, the course was simply a high school elective. Yet now it is for every K-12 Georgia student scholar to gain knowledge and skills to be digitally literate, a good digital citizen, digitally-competent, and also to learn how to use computational thinking to solve problems in our ever-evolving digital society.
Allowing our (9-12) grade student scholars to acquire these skills in our constantly changing world will allow me to help in preparing them for the over 1,400,000,000 vacant jobs in 2020 and not enough bodies to fill them. Many of these jobs do not require any college after high school and some of the starting salaries are in the six-figure range. So, join me in assuring your child exerts himself or herself for the many Computer Science careers that are waiting to be filled. When we consistently partner together, we can prepare for the next set of Cross Creek High School graduates for the vast Computer Science careers globally, nationally, and locally. I solicit your support in all we do here at Cross Creek High School.
