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.
