Mission Statement:
The mission of Construction Careers Academy (CCA) is to provide an advanced and rigorous curriculum with a focus on construction technology, construction management, architectural design, applied engineering and real-world experience that will prepare students for studies in higher education and/or a career in construction related industry.


Construction Careers Academy (CCA) offers students a practical study of the construction industry through a challenging academic program focused on preparing students for both employment in the construction industry and college. CCA provides rigorous and challenging instruction for construction-related occupations in fields such as carpentry, electrical trades, HVAC, plumbing/pipefitting and welding, architecture, construction management, and engineering. CCA students are provided opportunities to earn industry-recognized credentials through the National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER), a Department of Labor apprenticeship program, paid internships with area businesses, and college credit through Dual Credit and Advanced Placement course work.

About me: I am originally from Johnson City Tennessee and still a big time Volunteer fan. I am married and have five children and three grandchildren. My previous career was in the Air Force where I spent 22 years serving our great country. My career in the Air Force began by becoming an aircraft mechanic on the F 15 and F 111. I then transitioned into Air Force recruiting where I spent many rewarding years sharing career opportunities with high school and college students. After retiring from the Air Force, I taught AFJROTC for 7 years before going into administration. My hobbies include golf, hiking and camping, and spending time with my family.

Welcome Students and Parents!

It's great to be back for the 2019-2020 school year at Construction Careers Academy.

I am a proud graduate of NISD: Helotes Elementary, Stevenson Middle School and John Marshall High School. I graduated from UTSA with a degree in Economics, and Lamar University with a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership.

I have 13 years of residential home construction experience as a Construction Manager/Project Manager, and three additional years as an Estimator/Purchasing Manager. I am happy to bring this experience to CCA along with my many connections in the industry that I have. This is my eleventh year at CCA.
