Mrs. Cari Morisette, CPhT
I have been a certified pharmacy technician for 15 years. This is my 6th year teaching and my 2nd year at Granbury High School. In my years of teaching, I have taught Health Science Theory/Clinicals, Medical Billing & Coding, Pharmacy Technician, Pharmacology, Forensic Science, Principles of Health Science and Medical Terminology. I never know what they will ask me to teach!
Education & Work history: I am the 4th generation in my family to graduate from college. I grew up in Illinois near Chicago. I graduated from St. Charles High School in 2000. When I graduated, my parents moved to Granbury. I completed my first 3 years of college at Northern Illinois University. Then, I followed my parents to Texas and transferred to the University of Texas at Arlington where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. I worked full-time as a pharmacy tech at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth from 2005-2018. While working at Harris, I also worked as a pharmacy tech at Pecan Discount Drug from 2007-2009. I started teaching at North Side High School in Fort Worth during the 2015-2016 school year. I earned my teaching certificate from ECAP. I have lived in Granbury since 2006, so as soon as I saw a position open at Granbury High School, I applied. I am so happy to be a part of the Pirate Nation!
Family: My husband of 15 years works for Revolver Brewing. I have two daughters. Cadence is in 9th grade and Sierra is in 6th grade. I have two dogs, Maddy & Terra, and a parakeet, Kiko. I am very lucky to have family close by. My brother and his family live down the street from me and my parents live about a 3-minute drive away. My other brother and his family are a 2-hour drive away. The only one far away is my sister who lives near Washington D.C.
Fun Facts: I love Texas, but I miss Illinois weather. I miss cold winters and snow! My favorite animal is a polar bear, probably because they remind me of winter. I am obsessed with school supplies. In my spare time I enjoy painting. I also like baking and cooking.
