Ms. Priscilla Broughton

My name is Priscilla Broughton. I have taught business and computer technology courses at North Augusta High School for thirteen years.  Upon becoming a teacher, I became a co-adviser for the student organization - Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA).  As an adviser for FBLA, I have the opportunity to work closely with students as a teacher but also on a more personal level by mentoring them and helping them to see the bigger picture of business and technology.  I look forward to new members joining the organization in the fall.

I have worked in the field of education for 18 years.  I spent part of my professional career working for a local manufacturing company, where I held a position as staff accountant. I am a MBA graduate of Kaplan University.

For the 2020-2021 school year, I am teaching Fundamentals of Computing.  The course designed to introduce students to the field of computer science through the exploration of engaging and accessible topics. Through creativity and innovation, students will use critical thinking and problem-solving skills to implement projects that are relevant to students’ lives.  Students will gain a fundamental understanding of the history and operation of computers, programming, and web design. Lastly, students explore computing careers and examine societal and ethical issues of computing.

If you have any questions, please contact me at pbroughton@acpsd.net or call 803.442.6100 ext. 129 from 3:45 pm - 4:15 pm.  All contact information is located on my profile web page, as well as, on the course syllabus.
