South Carolina Business Education Association

President Letter.

     The start of a new school year brings with it great anticipation and excitement.  "How should I arrange the desks?  How should I decorate?  What new project or idea should I try this year?" Sometimes, it can also bring anxiety.  "How will I handle this technology?  Am I still qualified to teach under all this new legislation?  What about these new devices?"

     SCBEA is here for you.  The Executive Board has already had it's first meeting for the 2018-2019 academic year, and we've begun to discuss the needs of South Carolina Business teachers.  This year's annual convention, "SCBEA: Where Business and Technology Unite" is already shaping up to be a thrilling professional development opportunity.  The program committee, led by Denise Myers, is hard at work putting together a conference filled with session to address the array of topics impacting you, teachers of Business and Technology.  Be sure to mark your calendars to attend the conference, February 20-24, 2019 at the amazing Marina Inn at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach, SC.

     If you're looking to broaden your horizons even farther, join me at the SBEA convention, titled "Inspiration, Innovation, Collaboration," in Mobile, Alabama scheduled for October 17-20, 2018.

     I am so excited for this new school year, the freshness of a clean classroom and the newness of what we will explore with our students.  There is so much hope and joy in this season.  I know that working together in this great professional organization, we can keep our skills sharp and up-to-date, conquering challenges and breaking new ground.  Follow our website,, and social media accounts for relevant news and announcements throughout this year.  Contact me, your SCBEA President, at, or any of your other SCBEA board members if you have any questions or comments.  I look forward to seeing you at the SCBEA Convention in Myrtle Beach in February 2019.

Michelle Isenhower, SCBEA President
