Marci Hargrove, a teacher for 28 years, teaches business classes to sophomores, juniors and seniors at the Central High School-Keller ISD in Keller, Texas. Hargrove’s classes include: Accounting 1 and 2, Business Information Management and Business Management.
High school business teachers can teach their students the principles of business - accounting, entrepreneurship, management - as well as the specifics of different industries - sports/entertainment, restaurant, hotel, retail, manufacturing, fashion, etc. If a student in a high school business class catches the spark of business and entrepreneurship and wants to learn more, what can high school business teachers do to nourish and feed that passion and interest for business?
