Mrs. Amber Stokes
I am so excited to be entering into my 6th year of teaching Business Education at Midland Valley High School! I graduated from the University of South Carolina Aiken with a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. Before my teaching career, I worked at Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations in various roles and departments (Intern, Company Store Manager, Human Resources Assistant, and Business Assistant). I am also the DECA advisor here at MVHS and oversee the operation of our school store, Stomping Grounds Café.
I was born and raised in Aiken and currently live there with my husband (Jason) and two sons (Cameron who is 11 years old and Tanner who is 8 years old). I LOVE spending time with my family and look forward to my 6th year of teaching and being a part of the Mustang family!
