Anderson 5 Career CampusCosmetology DepartmentCrystal M. McGeeCosmetology Teacher864- 260-4466 ext. 169Cosmetology can be a challenging profession, but I can testify that through hard work and a positive attitude it can lead to a very rewarding career. It all started for me as a junior in high school when I started the cosmetology program offered at the Abbeville Career Center. In 1987, I earned my SC State Board certified license and began working as an independent contractor until 1992. At this point, I had the confidence to open my own salon, which I operated until 2005.After selling my business I went back to school to become a Registered Instructor of Cosmetology. I began my teaching career teaching and worked as a college instructor at Greenville Technical and Virginia College working with students anywhere from 18 to 58 years old. These students have very diverse life experiences and I feel lucky to have had the chance to both teach and learn from them.As much as I cherished the experience of working with college students, I cannot express how excited I was by the opportunity to develop and lead a high school program in Anderson County. I have called Anderson County home for the past seventeen years and I look forward to providing high school juniors and seniors with the same opportunity given to me 30 years ago.
I have worked for Anderson 5 school district now 8 years and year after year I watch some of the most talented students successfully pass their board exams and become licensed. Wow A5CC Cosmetology has come alive in the past 8 years and to watch my students succeed is the reason I teach today.Anderson V Career Campus1225 S. Mcduffie StreetAnderson SC 29624
