Hi! I am super excited to teach Family and Consumer Sciences this year! I am beginning my 4th year teaching and this is a start of the year like none other, but look forward to communicating with you virtually. The classes that are my responsibility this year are FACS Essentials (aka Lifeskills), Culinary I & II , Food and Nutrition, and Financial Literacy.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, attending church, boating, and baking. I look forward in teaching others my skills in the kitchen.
