• Welcome! 

    My name is Brett Sides and I am very excited to serve as the Career Development Coordinator at Weaver Academy.  I am a graduate of Appalachian State University and a former Business and Finance teacher.  I look forward to helping our students explore their future Careers.  The Career Development Coordinators (CDC) role is to support Career and Technical Education (CTE) and to coordinate career development services for students participating in CTE.  The CDC works collaboratively with other staff to ensure the delivery of career development services. CDCs facilitate partnerships to support students' transition to postsecondary education and employment.
