Beth Carey is a retired teacher from the Atlanta, Georgia, area with a passion for aiding teenagers as they prepare for life. Her mission in and out of the classroom has always been to help teens with their journey into the real world so they become happy, responsible, independent adults.
She received an undergraduate degree in marketing education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and master’s degree from Georgia State University in vocational leadership. She taught high school in various states during her 30 year tenure and was awarded Georgia Marketing Teacher of the Year in 2006 and voted by her peers to receive Teacher of the Year at her home high school in 2011. Her students earned multiple awards on the regional, state, and international level of competition through their involvement in the Association of Marketing Students (DECA), under her leadership. Her ability to use a dose of daily humor and love while setting high expectations and limits in the classroom allowed teens to thrive. Her focus was giving teenagers understanding and real life problem solving skills related to the world of business.
When not with adolescents, Beth loves to cook, travel, and spend time with her husband and children at the lake. She invites you to “Challenge” Teen’s Basic Knowledge, Social Skills and Independence Readiness. L.I.F.E. (Learning Information For Everyday) is a book series targeting other adults (and teens) who share her goal.
