Here to help...

I am here to help, support, and encourage. Don't hesitate to ask! The school counseling program here at TCEC assists students in the areas of academic, career, and personal-social growth.  I work with students directly through group guidance and individual counseling, as well as indirectly through consultation with school faculty and parents.  I will do my best to help you reach your goals. If you would like to talk, just schedule an appointment with me in person or send me a private message or email.  Your meetings are always confidential. 

 

ALISSA CHEEK

PRINCIPAL

Since the beginning

I am proud and honored to serve as principal for Tri-County Early College!  

 

I have been in education for 26 years, spending 18 years teaching Mathematics and Biology before assuming the role of principal at Tri-County Early College 8 years ago.  I strongly believe in the methods of teaching and learning we use at TCEC and am passionate about continually improving those methods in order to provide our students with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in whatever endeavor they choose.  

 

I grew up in Cherokee County where I attended Ranger Elementary School and then graduated from Hiwassee Dam High School in 1985.  I later returned to Hiwassee Dam as a teacher from 1991-2005. I attended Western Carolina and obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Mathematics in 1989, followed by my Master's Degree in Mathematics in 1995 and a second Master's Degree in Administration in 2007.

Bridging the gap...

Jason Chambers has been involved with TCEC since it was “an idea on a chalkboard.”  He carries a lot of job titles at Tri-County Community College and Tri-County Early College — college liaison, instructor, dean of research and planning.  Staying connected with students is so important to Chambers that he teaches the two community college courses required for all early college students. In the fall, he teaches a study skills class to freshmen, preparing them to navigate the community college and understand the resources available to them. Then in the spring, he teaches juniors how to successfully transition from the early college and community college into a four-year university. Dr.Chambers holds an associate degree from Young Harris College, a bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia, and both master’s and doctoral degrees in education from Western Carolina University.  When he’s not in the office or the classroom, Dr. Chambers can be found on his family farm caring for their pasture-raised, rare breed heritage hogs.

 I am honored to be teaching at Tri-County Early College. I teach Honors Civics & Economics to freshmen and Honors American History II to juniors. Teaching is a second career for me; my family owned and operated a furniture retail store for about twenty years.  Once the business was sold, I went back to school! I completed my AA at Tri-County Community College and transferred to Western Carolina University where I received a Bachelor's degree in History and a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education. I have been married for 27 years and my wife, Cathrine, and I have three sons, one of whom graduated from TCEC in 2012! I told my wife when I started at WCU that my dream job would be to work at the early college. I am living the dream!!

I love learning!  I believe our learning in school should mirror the authentic learning experiences of our real lives.  

 

I knew early on I loved to teach and discuss new learning with others.  In 7th grade, I convinced my Math and Social Studies teachers to let me teach their classes, more than once.  So, I attended Birmingham-Southern College for a Bachelor’s degree in Language Arts and Secondary Education, then continued my education with a Master’s in Experiential Education from Minnesota State University, Mankato.  

 

As a teacher at TCEC, I’ve been empowered to lead both in and outside the school and have been working to improve teacher professional development in western NC and influence state-level educational policies to support the innovative best practices we use so well.  After all, it was our best practices and depth of expertise in experiential education that allowed us to become a finalist in the national XQ SuperSchool grant competition in 2015.

 
I also love the outdoors.  I have lived and seen as much of the country as possible, including hiking over 1,600 miles with my wife on the Appalachian Trail.  My passions include running, in all forms and purposes, as a way of life, soccer, rock climbing, canoeing, hiking and backpacking, snowboarding, and any other physical activity I can find.
