Mickey Obermire: Clovis Adult School

Mickey has been employed at Clovis Adult Education, since August 1995, and has been a CCAE member, since 2011. Under her guidance, the Clinical Medical Assistant (CMA) program has graduated first-rate students and is recognized as one of the leading and most demanding programs in the Valley. Mickey is solely responsible for being the only approved adult school in the Central Section to offer the CMA National Certification Exam.

Mickey holds Designated Subjects teaching credentials in both Vocational Education and Adult Education. She is currently authorized to teach Computer Applications, Healthcare Diagnostics Services, Healthcare Information Services and Office Occupations. Mickey is always looking for opportunities to take part in professional development to expand her skills in teaching and curriculum development. She has completed OTAN's Online Teaching Academy (OTAC) and is currently participating in the 2016-2018 Digital Leadership Academy (DLAC). She has been a presenter at numerous CCAE chapter and section conferences, sharing her expertise in online education with other adult school educators.

Mickey has demonstrated a unique knowledge and understanding of the Medical Assistant curriculum and presents that curriculum in a relevant and real-world format for students. We truly appreciate the way Mickey makes students a priority, and constantly seeks ways to insure their success. These are the traits of a professional educator. We cannot thank Mickey enough for her continued years of dedication, commitment and energy. We love the passion she demonstrates every day for the program and is a wonderful and loyal member of the adult school family. It is our honor and pleasure to work with Mickey and watch her transform the CMA program into one of the finest in the Valley.
