I've been teaching Business for 2 years in Jefferson County's school district.
My favorite class is Business Management taught to Seniors in our HSB program.
Seniors are prepared to run the school store the second half of the class and get to employ all the skills they learn in class.
FBLA is in awesome organization. I think highlighting future business leader's breathes fresh air into the life of the business community.
I love playing chess and trading stock options. Anything that involves strategy, growth, and innovation I enjoy being a part of as if it's a part of me.
