Degrees and Certifications:

Coach Keith Cayton

After working in the banking and finance field for twenty years, I decided to teach and coached soccer at New Bern High. I have really enjoyed the last twenty-two years at New Bern High. My hope is that through the CTE courses, students will get a better understanding of the world of business and finance.



Welcome to Mr. Cayton’s class. Over the next few months we will learn in a variety of ways. We’ll work in groups, present findings in class, do projects, discussions, and you may even teach a class yourself. Before we begin the course material, we need to go over the basic classroom guidelines.



Unless there is a problem with behavior, you may set where you like. As we stasrt online learning, it is very important we respect everyone in the class.

Classroom type behavior in expected.

I will offer extra help to anyone who feels they need it, by appointment. Please do not hesitate to ask for help.


Bathroom Breaks


There is plenty of time for the bathroom before school and between classes. I realize that an occasional emergency might occur. You may be able to go to the bathroom after class lecture time.



Don’t be.


Makeup work


It is your responsibility to get notes from classmates and get missed class work. Makeup test are after school. Any missed work is a zero until made up. Makeup work is not work you just missed the due date. The due date is when work should be turned in. I will deduct 10 points per day for late work.




Any act or behavior that impairs my ability to teach or some ones ability to learn WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. I have four basic guidelines:


Be respectful.

Be prepared.

Be on time.

No food or drink. (when back in the classroom)
