Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Eugenia Ijames



My name is Eugenia Ijames (pronounced Ims). I teach Social Studies at the Career and Technical Leadership Academy (CTLA). I am also a proud graduate of the oldest Historically Black College or University (HBCU) in the South- Shaw University located in Raleigh, North Carolina. “Go Bears!” I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science while serving as an Intern at the North Carolina Institute of Constitutional Law.

  • My background in education includes 12 years at the Nortel Technical Education Center and 10 years as a Director and Teacher in Child Development.

    In my most recent employment, I served as a member of the Community Relations Public Affairs Council, Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Team. In this private sector role, I worked as President of the Employee Volunteer and Philanthropy Board and as the Eastern North Carolina Sustainability Chair.


    My passions include books, history, and sustainability.

    When I am not teaching, you can find me on my farm in Johnston County replanting longleaf pines and palm trees or attending history events with my husband who is a curator at the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh.
