Why She Loves ABEA:
Networking with teachers. Business teachers are the best!
How She's Served ABEA/NBEA:
Audit Committee ABEA 2015
ABEA Presenter 2015
Presenter, NBEA 2014
A Piece of Advice She'd Give a Brand New Business Educator:
Collaborate and work together with the Business Education and Career Tech team at your school. Our ideas are more effective when we brainstorm with others. The Business Ed department at my school is the best! Lauren Miller is the lead teacher on NBHS and our Career Prep interview day. Pam Hickman leads FBLA competitive events and MOS certifications and Morgan Palmer is our in-house graphic artist. Morgan designs brochures, postcards, notecards and fliers. Chris Wood coordinates baking cookies for our FBLA Otis Spunkmeyer cookie sale. I enjoy working with this team and can’t imagine how difficult my job would be without them.
What She Enjoys Outside of Teaching:
Running, riding my Harley, reading, and spending time with my family.
