Hello and welcome to my classroom. This is my 9th year teaching. This is my second year at Clearwood Jr. High.
I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in Secondary English Education. I taught English at the high school level for seven years before I decided to get certified in Family and Consumer Science. This begins my second year teaching Home Economics and FACS at Clearwood.
The mission of Family and Consumer Sciences is to prepare students to be competent, confident, and caring in managing their personal, family, and career lives. The Family and Consumer Sciences curriculum is a course designed to help young people in a society of constant change and to improve their quality of life by preparing them to meet their present and future responsibilities as family members, consumers, home managers, and wage earners. This course will engage students to be creative thinkers, critical thinkers, and problem solvers through real world applications. I look forward to this new school year. We will cover many interesting topics and complete many fun projects and labs in my class.
