Favorite Part of Teaching: Mrs. Hunter’s favorite part of teaching is when students have that look of the light bulb going off when they make a connection from reading to understanding how things work. Also when previous graduates return to the classroom to visit and share their IT work experience with the students. This is a great way to give back to the program.
Outside of School: When Mrs. Hunter is not teaching, she enjoys kayaking and being outside. She has a Karate Red Belt in Tang Soo Do. She also enjoys buying and driving vintage Ford and Chevy muscle cars.
