Specialization: Electronic Publications & Solutions for Education
A coal miner’s daughter, JoEtta McCluskey has been “teaching” ever since she can remember. As a child, she HAD to be the teacher when she and friends played school during the summer. So it seems natural that she would become an educator. As a high school teacher, not only does she enjoy witnessing the transformation students undergo during their school year, but she also desires to pass on to them an insatiable desire to learn.
JoEtta obtained her undergraduate degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology from West Virginia University, a Master’s in Teaching and Learning from Avila University and a Master’s in Christian Counseling from Faith Bible College.
When she moved from a little dirt road in Farmington, West Virginia to the six-lane highways in Kansas in 1998, she was overwhelmed and, for months, stayed in one lane on her drive to- and from- work. Amidst the uneasy feeling of being so far away from home, she was elated to discover a Steelers fan group in the midst of Chief’s nation!
JoEtta has completed a children’s book and is actively working on another. In her spare time she enjoys playing Spades, putting up fall decorations and once again, playing school. This time around, it’s with her husband (Mal), their six-year-old daughter (Anaiah), Jess, Woody and Buzz.
