FACS Teacher

I am excited to be back at East Middle School for another year of teaching Family & Consumer Sciences (Home Economics).

I was born and raised in Spruce Pine, then moved to Winston-Salem after college. After many years there, working as an interior designer and teaching FACS, it was time to come home to the mountains.

Teaching middle school is my favorite! With this curriculum, over the course of three years, my students will cover most of the basics of Family & Consumer Sciences. This year we will tackle the following topics/modules:

6th grade: Interpersonal Relationships & Foods and Nutrition

7th & 8th grades: Housing & Red Cross Babysitting Certification
