Ms. Lori Calton

Parents and Students, welcome to my classroom!

I relocated to the Charlotte/Concord area in July 2016 from Austin, TX. This is my fourth year at Cox Mill High School, and I am looking foward to working with each one of you. I have a cumulative ten years of CTE Business teaching experience at the secondary level, and bring approximately 20+ years of work experience as a business professional to the classroom. 

All assignments will be posted on and submitted to Canvas. Parents, you may setup an observation account to track your child's progress. Instructions to setup a Canvas account are as follows:

1. Visit the following website:

2. Click on “Parent of a Canvas User? Click Here For an Account” (If username in both fields do not work, have your child generate a "pairing code" from their account for you.

3. Complete the information in the box that appears. For the parent login/password, use the child's username for both fields (JDoe1234).
