Hello, I am Mrs. Highley. I am married to my husband, Jordan. We reside in Olympia with the sweetest little 7 year old boy, Karson and two dogs (Winston & Kobe). I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my nephews- I love being Aunt CheChe!:) I love spending time with my friends, relaxing by the pool, cooking, and being outside.
This is my third year at Bath County High School! I look forward to getting to know each student and their families! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about any of my class content or anything else!
I graduated from Bath County High School in 2006, so coming back to work in my hometown is wonderful! I went onto Marshall University after high school and graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice. While working for a law firm, I attended graduate school at the University of Cincinnati. I worked as a Pretrial Officer and then a Probation & Parole Officer. While at Probation and Parole, I realized my true passion was teaching and training others. I have taught as an adjunct instructor for BCTC in Lexington for several years when my full time job allowed me to travel there to teach. While, I loved my job at Probation and Parole and I do miss it immensely, I love being able to teach what I enjoy and that is Criminal Justice. My hope is that each student that comes through my door feels loved, appreciated, and gains new respect and knowledge for the Criminal Justice system as a whole. I have a Rank I certificate to teach Occupation-Based Law Enforcement Classes. I am also certified to teach English through the University of the Cumberland's and I teach English Intervention during Study Zone. I am the Chair of the BCHS attendance committee, Y-Club Adviser, member of the Trauma team, member of Kappa Delta Pi, member of Kentucky Council for Crime and Delinquency, serve on YSC Advisory Council, and member of the Fraternal Order of Police.
As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me!
