Mr. Vincent Maivelett

I am excited to return to Wagener Salley High School (WSHS) for the 2018-2019 academic year.  Having started my teaching career as a Business Education Teacher in February of 2017, I look forward to seeing returning students and getting started for what I know will be a successful school year.  Subjects that I will teach this year include:  Fundamentals of Computing, Accounting, Personal Finance and Image Editing.  I will, again,  be chairing the “Students In Action” program and have high expectations for us to match or improve our performance over last year where we earned recognition as a "2018 Silver Leadership School."

Over thrity five years of business experience position me to share business knowledge with our students and challenge them as they begin to explore potential business careers and/or opportunities.  I hold a Master’s Degree in Administrative Science from The Johns Hopkins University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Loyola College, both of which are in my hometown of Baltimore, Maryland.  My work experience includes:  Project Services Manager, Financial Planning, Contracts, Procurement, Business Management, Auditing, and Accounting.  I have held management positions for major corporations since 1990 that were primarily associated with Prime Contractors to the US Department of Energy.

All of my classes will be taught in our computer lab (Room 106).

My expectations for class each day are simple:

·         Students come prepared for class each day.

·         Students bring their textbook.

·         Students bring something to write with to be able to take notes during class.

·         Students have paper to write on when taking notes.

·         Students have a notebook or folder to store notes, class handouts, and completed quizzes and tests.
