Mrs. Kathleen Mars

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 anyone can find me teaching Drafting I, Drafting II-Engineering and Drafting III-Engineering as well as a few Technological Design classes.

In my spare time, I can always be found with my family which includes my husband, our two teenage daughters and our  4 year old son. When we have time, we enjoy hiking, camping, offshore fishing, or cooking in the kitchen as well as relaxing as much as we can!
