Mrs. Amber Stokes
Hello! I am so excited to be teaching Business Education at Midland Valley! I graduated from the University of South Carolina Aiken in 2007 with a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. From 2006 - 2018 I worked at Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations in Graniteville, SC in various roles and departments (Intern, Company Store Manager, Human Resources Assistant, and Business Assistant). I was in the role of Business Assistant for 8 years before deciding to transition over into the wonderful world of teaching! While working at Bridgestone, I was also able to live out my dream of owning my own Competitive Cheerleading Gym for a few years! I have always had a passion for working with the youth and feel that I will be able to relate what we learn in the classroom to some real world, on the job experiences. One of my goals for the courses that I teach is to help ensure that students are career and/or college ready!
I was born and raised in Aiken and currently live there with my husband (Jason) and two sons (Cameron who is 6 years old and Tanner who is 3 years old). I LOVE spending time with my family and look forward to my first year of teaching and being a part of the Mustang family!
