I am Ms. McCann and welcome to Environmental Science. This is my second year teaching at University High School and I am excited to be a Titan! I was born and raised in southern West Virginia. I have one child, a son named Braeden who is 13. We have a Chihuahua named Scrappy and a turtle named Shelly. I love watching sports! I am a HUGE NASCAR fan, as well baseball and football. My favorite NASCAR driver is Dale Jr, but I cheer for the Chevy teams. My MLB teams are the Reds and Braves and my NFL team is the Cincinnati Bengals. College football and basketball are also favorites of mine and I always cheer on the WVU Mountaineers! We enjoy all the outdoor activities central Florida has to offer. We are very excited to have become Floridians!
I would like to share a little about myself. I graduated from Hamlin High School in 1997 where I was a varsity cheerleader, played the clarinet in the concert band, participated in student council, Mu Alpha Theta, prom club, yearbook and wrote for the school newspaper. Two highlights of my time as a high school student were attending West Virginia Girls State and winning the Golden Horseshoe. After high school, I attended West Virginia State College in Institute, WV where I continued as a varsity cheerleader. I was also involved in the Army ROTC program and thought seriously of becoming an officer. I graduated with my BS degree in biology education in 2003.
In the fall of 2003, I began working at Capital High School in Charleston, WV. This is my 13th year as a high school science teacher. I have taught Biology, Anatomy, Intro to Healthcare, Forensic Science, Travel WV, and Science 9 and 10. While at CHS, I was involved as the varsity cheer coach, sponsor of the peer mediators, prom club, ski club, and was the HSTA Leader. I enjoyed my time as a Capital Cougar very much, and look forward to being as involved as a University Titan!
Wishing you a SUCCESSFUL year!
