Meet the Staff

    Mrs. Cartwright

    Even though I was born in Tulsa, OK, I lived all my school years in Pittsburgh, PA.  When my family moved to Texas, we drove through Nacogdoches, and I liked the look and feel of Stephen F. Austin State University and enrolled that first day.  I studied business and worked as an Oil and Gas accountant after graduation.  After 12 years, I took my savings and went back to school to become a chef.  Catering, cooking classes and running a small business used all my talents.  I learned to love teaching cooking and went back to school, again, to get my teaching certificate – that was 11 years ago.  You never know what your passion truly is until you try.  My passion turned out to be teaching!
