Hello. My name is Megan Carter. I am the OCS teacher at Sugar Creek Charter School. I have a bachelor's degree is special education, a bachelor's degree in psychology, a master's degree in clinical psychology, and am currently working on my PhD in clinical psychology. I have been teaching for approximately ten years. I am originally from West Virginia and have three children.


This semester, I will be teaching English II, Financial Management, Math I, Employment Prep II & III.

English II: This course is intended for Occupational Course of Study (OCS) students who will be working with both their face-to-face classroom teacher and an NCVPS online teacher. Students will gain mastery of curricular concepts through a survey of world literature. Through the examination of vocabulary including prefixes and suffixes, literary genres including fables and short stories, textual analysis through poetry, drama, fiction and nonfiction, persuasion and argumentation, presentation techniques, cause and effect writing, and research focusing on global awareness, the student will explore, examine, and evaluate a wide variety of modes of expression.

Financial Management: This course blends the best of online and classroom activities. Six engaging units cover topics such as personal financial planning, wages and compensation, state and federal taxes, consumer spending, credit, and insurance.

Math I: The NC Math 1 course purpose is to deepen and extend students’ understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other and by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. Additionally, students will engage in methods for analyzing, solving and using quadratic functions, will be introduced to operations with real numbers and polynomials, and will be asked to explain and use area and perimeter formulas. Assessments within the course include, but are not limited to, multiple choice, short answer, extended response questions, self-check quizzes, group work and partner activities, presentations, and interactive games. Upon successful completion of the NC Math 1 sequence, students will have mastered the NC Math 1 standards and will be ready for NC Math 2.

Employment Prep II & Employment Prep III Citizenship 2B: This course is designed to teach students skills and promote success in the areas of postsecondary education, employment, and independent living. Instructional emphasis will be placed on the application and generalization of skills to post school environments. The Six Employability Skills adopted by NCDPI have been embedded within the competency goals and objectives throughout the course. Students will receive direct instruction in the competency goals and objectives during class time and will be expected to apply appropriate skills within the naturally occurring setting.
