Cosmetologists In Action
by Jshurene Gift
One of the career paths here at Charlotte Amalie High School in our
technology preparation programs is Cosmetology Technology. The Cosmetology
Technology pathway includes English 9-12, three years of Math, three years
Science, three years of History, two years of foreign Language, CPR and First Aid, and other elective courses. However, in grades 11 and 12, students must
perform an intense course of study in cosmetology.
This year, the cosmetology class of C.A.H.S. is a perfect example of
"career in action." Students are trained to do hair, nails, skin, and more.
The nine talented students in the class this year are Shanique Frett,
Tireka Thomas, Nesiree Richards, Jolena Harrigan, Taima Harvey, Marlita
Hickson, Claudina Pennyfeather, Rita Ledee, and Maurice Simmonds, the only male.
These students are working hard on a variety of skills. Their hair
designs include finger waves, braids, coloring and perms. They also do manicures, pedicures and skin conditioning.
Headed by Ruth Slaughter, (fondly known by her students as Ms. Ruth) students learn both theory and practice.
In the theory phase of the class, the students study nail structure, hair structure, anatomy, physiology, first aid, chemistry, geometry, business,
and communications. They learn more than just how to prevent and treat
chemical damage on one’s hair and nails.
In the second phase of the class, the students put what they have learned into practice. Starting with work on mannequins, the students also work their magic on teachers and students around the school.
"We are open to the public during third and fourth period, so anyone can
stop by and get their hair or nails done," said Harvey.
"This two-year track prepares the students for the world of work and their business license," said Slaughter.
"From this class I have gained a lot of experience and knowledge about
taking care of myself," says Nesrie Richards.
More than just learning about hairdressing and manicures, the students are learning a trade that can give them extra money even if they do not want to pursue cosmetology as a full time career time job . By benefitting themselves and others, the Cosmetology Class of 2000 demonstrates "cosmetologists in action."
New Science Teachers
by Staff
Charlotte Amalie High School now has two additional science teachers. They are Sheryl Joseph, and Saltieh Said.
Said, who was a former math teacher left, came back, and is currently teaching science. Joseph who taught at a junior high level is now a teacher here.
With more and more teachers becoming part of our staff, it decreases the number of students who have no teacher and were on the path of failing. The CAHS family would like to welcome you into the family. Have a nice stay!
