This is my second year as the Career Pathway Experience Instructor as well as the Career Coach at Pontotoc Ridge Career and Technology Center. I am from Houston, MS and I am married to Ty Stroup. We have three beautiful children, Tucker (10), Andi Mae (4), and Levi (3). I attended Northeast Mississippi Community College and earned an Associates degree in education, then to the University of Mississippi where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Education. 

Career Pathway Experience is an elective program that gives students the credit for learning at their place of employment or work site.  CPE assists students who are enrolled in or completed a CTE program, or who have a clear career objective in finding employment or internships. The goal is to provide real-life work experience related to students' career goals and interests. The career pathway coordinator will supervise students' work and assist with college/career planning along the way.
