Mrs. Janet Cavender

I grew up in Lawrence County, AL and graduated from the University of North Alabama with a degree in Business.  After working for Boeing in Huntsville for three years, I had my first child, Anna Jones.  I taught private piano lessons as I raised Anna and my son, Daniel Jones. I began teaching at Lawrence County Christian School while I earned a 5th Year Master’s Degree in Business Education at Alabama A&M University.

I married my husband, Keith Cavender in 2003.  He is employed at Redstone Arsenal as a Systems Analyst. We have four children together:  Josh Cavender is a Civil Engineer; Zack Cavender is a Mechanical Engineer. Zack and his wife Jessica have two children, Case and Camille.  Grandchildren are wonderful!  Anna (Jones) Huffman is married to Ryan. Anna teaches 8th grade English at Buckhorn Middle School and loves her job.  Daniel works as a PDS Technician at Spectrum Solutions in Madison.  He travels all over the world.  I am a member of Valhermoso Springs Baptist Church and play the piano.

My first public school teaching job was at East Lawrence High.  In 2002, West Morgan High School hired me to teach Technology Education, Business Tech Essentials, and sponsor the yearbook. I worked there for 14 years before being hired at Priceville High School in Fall 2016.  I enjoy teaching Career Tech business classes so much and hope to expand and improve my program!  I sponsor Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and look forward to its growth. 

I’m truly blessed to have a career that is so rewarding.
