My name is Pam Roberson and I am Career Development Coordinator (CDC) for East Carteret High School, Beaufort Middle School, & Down East Middle School. I graduated from Lycoming College with a degree in Finance and Economics and started working for BB&T the day after I graduated. I spent almost 10 years there before realizing how much I really didn’t enjoy going to work every day. I decided to switch careers and started in education in August 2007 as the school bookkeeper. The only business teacher in my building was deployed, so I decided to jump in and started in the classroom teaching Middle School Business Education within 6 months. After my third child in 2014, I stayed home for 3 years and came back to work full time in 2017. I am beyond excited to be back as a CDC in Carteret County! At ECHS I teach internships for any student wanting to participate in CTE Internships. I also work with all students and job shadowing, whether that is through your CTE Honors course curriculum or a desire to learn about a career. My husband, Al, is entering his 26th year as an educator, currently a Principal, and we have 3 children: Sydney (14), Chase (11) and Brooks (6).

Why Does Career Development Matter for Students?

  • Introduces students to the working world they will one day enter

  • Matches interests to career choices

  • Improves academic performance

  • Improves the attitudes of students about career potential

  • Increases students’ knowledge of career options

  • Helps students see how they fit in the working world

  • Encourages students to plan high school courses based on future goals
