The Esthetics Course at ATA is approved and governed by the South Carolina State Board of Cosmetology. Students in this program experience hands on training using top of the line "Spa Grade" equipment and the latest tools in the Esthetics industry. This major is developed to prepare each student for the Esthetics Licensure Examination. Upon completion of their classes and by passing their state exam, students are fully prepared to step into a salon or spa with no further education required. Additionally, students may choose to further their education after high school to pursue a career in the medical field as an esthetician.
I have been teaching for 12 years. I began my career in education as a Cosmetology and Esthetics Instructor at Miller-Motte Technical College. I am currently in my 11th year at the Academy for Technology and Academics. I have a degree in Education. I believe that the most rewarding part of my role as a teacher is the opportunity that I have to develop relationships with my students. The Esthetics Program has brought me together with so many wonderful and interesting students from across the district. I hope that the information students learn in my class will help each one of them lead successful futures.
