Bringing a doctorate in Education Administration from The Ohio State University to the school, Dr. Watkins is excited to be part of North Woods Career Prep as it continues to be transformed into a 21st century school that effectively serves all students. She has 30 years of teaching experience teaching music and other arts which explains why she is always looking for creative ways to engage and empower students through as many modes and categories of learning as possible. Married with two adult children and two grandchildren (whose first language is Mandarin!) Dr. Watkins enjoys cooking, photography, traveling, SCUBA diving, spending time with friends, and learning more about the spiritual component of life. So pleased to be working with the team and students at NWCP, she looks forward to seeing how our students prepare and move on to change the world now and after high school!
