Lancaster Career Center
Law Enforcement Services Instructor
Lancaster, SC
Before implementing the Law Enforcement Services program in Lancaster County, I was an Evidence Technician in federal law enforcement. I bring my real-world experience into the classroom to teach students what they don't see on television. My mission is to provide my students with an academically challenging course of study while also creating a relevant application- based learning environment. I rely on my formal education and my past experiences, both personal and professional, to help students decide if one of the varied career opportunities in the Law Enforcement field is the right choice for them. I strive to help students achieve their personal best in the classroom and beyond.

I love to talk about recruiting and building programs with the resources you have. Recruiting is vital to the success of any CTE program. Recruiting is more than just marketing your program to students - it is also recruiting community partners to help you provide the most relevant, real-world experiences possible for your students. Over the past 16 years in the Lancaster School District, my Law Enforcement Services program has grown from nothing into a thriving program that last semester had 59 students from four different high schools. It has not always been easy, and there have been numerous obstacles in my way throughout the process, but I have methods that work for me that can work for CTE educators in any program. Not only do I want to share my strategies, but I also want to share encouragement to anyone who may be frustrated and struggling to build a program. It is my hope that you can take what I used to build my program and come up with ideas that can work for you.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband Ernie and our two children, Brady and Emily. Our family also includes a snobby Ragdoll cat named Loki, a goofy Akbash hound named Daisy, and a kitten named Tiger that rules the house. We love to travel to new places and explore outdoors whenever we can. I also enjoy cooking, painting, and singing in my church choir and praise team. I am excited for the chance to get to know fellow CTE teachers and collaborate as we navigate the new teaching waters that have come our way!
