Hello and welcome to my webpage. I am Melissa Smith, RN, BS Voc. Ed., and am the Health Sciences Instructor for the Monroe County Area Technology Center’s Satellite program located at Metcalfe County High School. I attended Western Kentucky University and became a Registered Nurse in 1993 and later received a Bachelor’s of Science in Vocational Education in 2006.
I have been a Health Sciences teacher since 1999 and, shortly thereafter, became the Advisor of HOSA, a CTSO for Future Health Care Professionals. Prior to teaching, I have 10 years of professional nursing experience in the healthcare industry.
I offer three career pathways: Pre-Nursing, Pharmacy Technician, and Phlebotomy Technician. Courses include Principles of Health Science, Medical Terminology/Emergency Procedures, Medicaid Nurse Aide, and Internships for Pharmacy Technician and Phlebotomy Technician. Students will be eligible to earn certifications as completers of a pathway. Those certifications include the State Registered Nurse Aide (SRNA), Certified Pharmacy Technician (CPhT), and/or Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT).
I am married to Scot and we have four children: Veronica, a Bio-Chem Major at WKU; Braxton, a Bio Major at UK; and Selexa and Braydon, who are in middle school. My hobbies/interests include being a Zumba Instructor, Cheerleading Coach, and Prom Coordinator.
Earning a health care certification and getting real jobs has a profoundly positive effect on our students. It truly changes their lives and helps them to become confident, productive members of our community.
You are always welcome to contact me by calling (270)432-2481 or (270)487-8261 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
