Class News

Some of our classes are taking advantage of the opportunities provided by the CTE program.

Fire Service

Fire Service students practiced getting the turn out gear on during class. They also have been working on learning building construction types. They created posters and presented to their peers on the different types of construction.

AWC Sports Injury Management (Sports Medicine)

Sports Medicine students in the AWC Sports Injury Management course had a special visit from members of our local fire department to demonstrate proper neck and spine alignment with a potential injury.

Graphic Design

Mr. Bangsund's intermediate and Advanced Studio art classes have been working on landscape paintings.

We have incorporated multiple different techniques onto a practice painting.

For the actual project it became a little more individualized with a wider choice of images to choose from to implement transferable techniques. Alana G. is showing her understanding of the paint medium.

HOSA officers attended the HOSA Fall Leadership Camp in Prescott, AZ in September.

This event was designed to give officers an opportunity to improve their leadership skills and get to know their HOSA State Officers and peers. Even though the event had to be cut short due to an illness, they learned new things and bonded as officers. A good time was had by all!


Instructional Best Practices

The first course of Instructional Best Practices was held in the Lake Havasu High School library on Sept 15th. This professional development promotes continuous growth and best practices for our CTE instructors. They will also have the opportunity to earn ADE credit toward their teaching certification.

Special Speaker

On Sept 20th Cameron Moses (owner of Cha Bones and current city council member) and Jeni Coke (HRMC Physician recruiter and city council member) came to speak to our Career Explorations Interns about how to prepare for an interview.

This industry partnership is a valuable connection for LHHS students as well as our community.

Mrs. Bagby

I grew up and graduated high school in Chadron Nebraska. I attended the University of Nebraska at Kearney. My goas was to teach High School Home economics. I switched my degree and majored in Elementary Educatin and Early Childhood Education. My first teaching job was in Parker, AZ and I moved to laked Havasu in 2004, teaching kindergarten at Jamaica Elementary.

I began teaching Early Childhood Education at LHHS in 2015 and have been a teacher ofr 30 years. Earned my National Board Teaching Certification in 2021 in CTE.

Teaching Early Chidlhood Education is the best of wboth worlds, working with preschoolers and high schoolers. I enjoy coming to work every day and working with the team of Little Knights Preschool teachers.

I also love getting former kindergarten students in my high school class

Mrs. Hendry

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands! I have been happy and clapping my hands for 35 years of my teaching career. All but one of those years has been in CTE; Rosemead HS (CA), South El Monte HS (CA), Thunderbolt, and LHHS.

My most recent CTE journey has included Early Childhood Education with several of the students earning their Child Development Associate credential. My newest endeavor is Education Professions. It's been the best start of my day seeing hope for our future educators! (Other than the Little Knights :-)) CTE is my heart and my home. CTE is my home for earning my National Board Certification.

My personal life is a busy and fun one. I LOVE time with my family and close friends. My husband and I host several gatherings at our home during the year. We spend lots of time laughing and making fun of each other. The newest to our family is our 16-month-old granddaughter and 10-month-old grandson. It's fun knowing, teaching, and dancing songs with them!

We also enjoy boating and camping. I share the sole joy of bike riding and working out in the wee hours of the morning. We do keep our Sundays for the Lord and attend church with our kids and many of their friends.

I look forward to retiring in the near future. The "tentative" plan is to help out with the grandkids, spend time with the hubby, spend time with my Dad, who's 93 years old, sub for CTE (ONLY), volunteer in the community, and be a guest reader and song/dance leader in Little Knights preschool
