Dr. Charlene Hurst

This is my 2nd year at W.S. Permenter's Business Academy and I am excited to be back.

A little about myself:   I am a mother of 3 daughters and 7 grandsons.  My grandsons love sports (especially football & basketball), so I spend a lot of time at the Fieldhouse!  My favorite channel is Investigation Discovery (ID).  I love puzzles of any kind and spending time with my family. 

I am certified to teach Business-Marketing-Finance for grades 6-12.  I am also a certified Project Management Professional (PMP). I have over 30 years of corporate work experience and 8 years of non-profit work experience.  I also have business ownership experience. 

I received my Bachelors of Business Administration from Texas Wesleyan University, my Masters of Public Administration fromTarleton State University, and my Doctorate of Education (Teaching with Emerging Technology), from Abilene Christian University.
