Kaitlin Pniewski Urbanovitch
When she started as a student at South Forsyth High School, Katie Pniewski had wanted to be an elementary school teacher. But after discovering a love of business and marketing, she found herself moving down a new path. Not an unusual story for any student - however, she found her two passions merging after graduation, returning to her alma mater (now married and going by Katie Urbanovitch) and becoming a marketing teacher in one of the most successful and decorated Business & Marketing programs in the state of Georgia. Now approaching nearly a decade of teaching, she is right where she wants to be.
What did you study in college?
In college, I changed my major three times. I started out as a marketing major, then switched to advertising, and ended up graduating with a degree in public relations.
Having been very active in business and career classes during her time at South, Dr. Valery Lowe is now helping students throughout Forsyth County Schools discover their passions for engineering, marketing, culinary arts, veterinary science, and more. As the Director of College & Career Development, she oversees the direction of the entire CTAE programs at all of the high schools in Forsyth County.
What did you study after leaving high school?
I stayed in the realm of business and workforce education. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Business Education from the University of Georgia. I continued on to graduate school, receiving both my M.Ed. and my Ed.D. in Workforce Education from UGA.
What is your current job now, and how did your experiences at South help prepare you for that?
I am currently the Director of College and Career Development for all of Forsyth County Schools.
