Mrs. Janet Cavender

Hello Bulldogs! I am so excited about beginning my 7th year at PHS. I enjoy teaching Career Tech business/marketing classes and being the co-op coordinator. I sponsor Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), which has provided amazing learning, travel, and leadership experiences for my members. For more information about PHS FBLA, click here.

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. 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 PeopleTec, Inc. as a Cyber Security Analyst. We have four children together: Josh Cavender is a Civil Engineer; Zack Cavender is a Mechanical Engineer. His wife, Jessica, is a teacher at Whitesburg Christian Academy. They have two precious children, Case and Camille. Grandchildren are wonderful!  Anna (Jones) Huffman is married to Ryan, who is a finance manager. Anna teaches 8th grade English at Buckhorn Middle School and loves her job. Daniel works at Decatur Printing. 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 Middle/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’m truly blessed to be a Priceville Bulldog and to have a career that is so rewarding.
