All all assignments are posted in my Google Classroom. Here you will find your assignments, grades, and any resources needed for the class.

If you are the parent or guardian of a child in one of my classes, you may join the class as a guardian. Doing this will allow to view the child's assignments and grades. You may do this yourself or you may email me and I will add you to the page.

Co-Op & COE

What is Marketing Co-Op

Co-op is a part of the VDOE's work-based learning program. Work-based learning (WBL) is a school-coordinated, coherent sequence of on-the-job experiences that are related to students’ career goals and/or interests, are based on instructional preparation, and are performed in partnership with local businesses, industries, or other organizations in the community. Work-based learning enables students to apply classroom instruction in a real-world business or service-oriented work environment.

There are seven different WBL methods of instruction currently practiced in Virginia – job shadowing, mentorship, internship, service learning, clinical experience, student apprenticeship, and cooperative education. These can be grouped into three categories with three different primary goals – career exploration, pre-professional development, and career preparation.

For Students:

If you are a student and are interested in earning school credit while working please see me to learn more...All you have to do to earn Co-Op credits is to be enrolled in a marketing class during 1 of the 2 semesters of the current school year, and have a job. If you do not have a job, I will try to help you find a job, however finding a job is your responsibility.

To earn 1 credit you need to work 396 hours, to earn 2 credits you need to work 792hrs.  This works out to working roughly 22 hours a week.

While Co-Oping you have the option to work after school, or leave school either 11:20 or 1:30.
