​Instructional Management Coordinator

I am the CTE Instructional Management Coordinator at South Mecklenburg High School. I support our CTE Departments wide range of classes, teachers and the CTSO organizations with instructional support and accountability. We are fortunate to have a dynamic teacher team in the CTE department. Our career pathways are Auto, Culinary Arts, PLTW Engineering, PLTW Bio Medical Science, Marketing, Business, and Family and Consumer Science. This is my fourth year at South Meck and proud to be Sabre! Our goal is to maintain current knowledge of the Standard Course of Study, 21st Century Skills, and foster the interest of students' career opportunities. Go Sabres!


Work Keys - Senior Students that have taken at least four CTE classes in a pathway are eligible to take this career readiness assessment.

ACT WorkKeys® Assessments are the cornerstone of ACT workforce solutions. The assessments measure foundational skills required for success in the workplace, and help measure the workplace skills that can affect job performance. WorkKeys assessments are:

  • Relevant—WorkKeys® assessments are developed to solve actual workplace problems. Unlike other assessments, they don't simply give an indication of reading and writing competency. Instead, they measure a range of hard and soft skills relevant to any occupation, at any level, and across industries.

  • Recognized—Successful completion of WorkKeys core assessments can lead to earning an ACT WorkKeys® National Career Readiness Certificate™ (ACT WorkKeys NCRC®)—a credential that verifies the skills found to be most essential across industries and occupations. Tens of thousands of employers recognize the value of the NCRC, and many recommend the credential to candidates

National Career Readiness Certificate

Individuals who successfully complete the three WorkKeys Assessments—Applied MathGraphic Literacy, and Workplace Documents—earn the WorkKeys National Career Readiness Certificate® (WorkKeysNCRC®), a valuable credential for students and job seekers seeking to verify foundational workplace skills.
