Ingram is spotlighted at LeCroy Tech

Christiane Ingram is the employee spotlight for the month of December at LeCroy Career Technical Center. This is her first year working with the Chilton County School System. She teaches Environmental Science to juniors, and Earth Science to seniors at LCTC. Teaching is her second career. She was formerly a lab assistant working with Biofuel and Bioprocessing Research. Ms. Ingram has also worked as a teaching assistant for college science lab classes. She obtained her Master’s degree in Secondary Science Education earlier this year, and this is her first assignment as a high school science teacher.

When she was asked what she liked best about career technical education, Ms. Ingram replied, “I believe career tech classes are critical to prepare students for their future professional lives. Additionally, students who are not sure about their future plans can get an idea of which profession they may be interested in. At LCTC, the different career tech classes are designed to introduce students to a real workplace environment by providing first-class equipment and instruction that they might otherwise not have access to. The Academy students at LCTC have the opportunity to take their core classes on this campus. The science classes I teach here are providing further hands-on experiences to these students, in addition to what they learn in their trade classes.”
