Professional BiographyChris StarkeBusiness & Marketing (CTE)
I am excited to be entering my 14th year at Briar Woods! This year I will be teaching Introduction to Cybersecurity, Cybersecurity Software Operations and Personal Finance. I will also be sponsoring our new CyberPatriot Club and LaunchX Club, and I will also be co-sponsoring the Briar Woods Future Business Leaders of America chapter.
I am a long-time resident of Loudoun County, and I graduated from Broad Run High School and Shepherd College. Prior to becoming a teacher, I spent 10 years in college athletics media relations. I also coached softball at the college level for several years and at Briar Woods for 11 years (six as the varsity assistant and five as the varsity head coach).
I am a die-hard fan of the Dallas Cowboys, the Toronto Blue Jays and the Toronto Maple Leafs (I was born just outside of Toronto, Canada). I enjoy listening to live music and working out. I am a member of the Virginia Association for Marketing Educators (VAME) and the Virginia Business Education Association (VBEA), and I hold teaching certifications in business, marketing and math. I also hold W!SE Financial Literacy certification and am a W!SE Gold Star Teacher.
