Ms. Kathleen LaPointe

I was born and raised in a small rural community in the Mid West-Iowa  but have lived in North Carolina since 1996.  

I obtained my A.A.S. in Architectural Technology from Coastal Carolina Community College. From there, I spent 18 years working in an Architectural Office either sitting behind a desk using AutoCAD to complete construction drawings for residential or commercial buildings, or meeting with clients discussing their projects, or in the field on site visits during the construction process. I still designs houses for builders in my “spare” time.  I also have my Occupational Education Certificate from Isothermal Community College.  

I am the CTE Department Chair here at Northside as well as being actively involved in the Safe and Civil School Committee, the School Leadership Team and is a part of the Applied STEM Model Academy Tower Team where anyone can find me teaching Drafting I, Drafting II-Engineering and Drafting III-Engineering.

In my spare time, I can always be found with my family which includes my other half, my two teenage daughters and my 1 1/2 year old son. We are either hiking, camping, offshore fishing, or cooking in the kitchen as well as relaxing as much as we can!
