Hello! My name is Michelle Chambers. I teach Career Technology Education funded courses to 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. Currently, Exploring Careers is an insightful course that allows sixth grade students to explore the various career clusters, the specific jobs found within each cluster, and the various skills/interests that are needed for specific clusters. Our seventh grade students work through Exploring Business and Entrepreneurship to learn what it takes to operate a business. The eighth grade students are learning the various functions of the MicroSoft Office Suite in our Office Productivity class.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting from Elizabeth City State University. I have been teaching for 2 years. However, as part of the Career Technical Education initiative, I bring over 20 years of industry experience to the classroom. I have worked within the realm of finance for 15 years. I find the experience of teaching middle school students the inner workings of the business world as well as helping to guide the kids career goals incredibly rewarding.
